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.
Who should watch?
Aging transmission infrastructure has to be modernized to deliver electricity more reliably and efficiently. Asset owners of the ecosystem such as manufacturers, service providers, and government offices have to consider the multiple challenges around energy transmission.
The analysis of cables, lines and bus bars involves several physical domains and constraints such as magnetic, electric, thermal and power networks fields. From transmission lines to power transformers through to insulation equipment, Altair provides software solutions for in-depth analysis and accurate prediction for reliable energy transmission.
Who should watch?
From power plants that regulate their power output, to the coordination of centralized and decentralized energy supplies and fluctuations in power needs - Smart Grid is gaining importance and is expected to provide on-demand management.
Power safety and control equipment play a key role in this new challenge, which means switchgears, electric switchboards, contactors have to communicate and work together more. Flux will help with the design and integration of sensors, switches and relays in such devices, to be safe, communicant, reliable, easily integrated and compatible with other equipment already in place.
