Flux Power Grid Equipment Webinar Series

Designing Efficient and Sustainable Energy Generation Equipment Thanks to Simulation

Presented by: Patrick Lombard - Lead Application Specialist - EM Solutions


Date:  6 March 2018

Time:  4pm CET / 10am EST

Duration:  1 hour

Brief Description 

From conventional to renewable energy and large-scale power plants to in-house systems, energy generation has to be efficient and sustainable to supply the grid and support  different needs.


Whatever the source of energy is, the generators should convert motive power into as much electrical power as possible. From a few kW to MW, Flux can perform electromagnetic analysis that enables increased generator performance, while still remaining light or compact, depending on its final integration.

The coupling to Altair software  enables users to address multi-domain optimization to improve overall installation efficiency, optimize the fluid flow energy transmission to the equipment, predict the best gear ratio, optimize its cooling, etc.


Hard to access equipment has to maintain performance over time. Extending the service life and averting any downtime that could affect production remains a necessity. Flux™ can be used to build fault tolerant generators for the latest generation of tidal equipment.
