| The use of Wind Energy is fast becoming a key contributor to the energy mix. Using Flowmaster V7 early in the concept phase of the design cycle, various applications can be modelled including calculating pressure drops for any part of the system and ensuring the optimum size of pumps and valves; helping designers understand and eliminate any potential problems early before the system is built and installed.
Flowmaster can be used in the Braking, Cooling, Lubrication and Hydraulic systems of wind turbines.
Solar Energy Systems
With the emergence of alternative power generation methods including the Thermal receiver method of solar power generation; ensuring accuracy of analyses relies heavily on CFD with limited live data.
Flowmaster V7 enables design engineers to investigate many different what-if scenarios based on real operating conditions put on the system before it is built, which saves time and money when the system is installed and commissioned.
Applications include modelling of the steam from boiler to turbine and then from condenser to boiler for water; pipe, pump, and orifice sizing; system flow balancing and spare capacity to safeguard for future demands on the system.
