Gain insight into how your product performs with dynamic simulations

Dynamic simulation can be useful within several areas, such as vehicles, wind turbines and pumps where dynamic simulation serves many purposes, including determination of loads/tensions, demonstration of dynamic (and aeroelastic) stability, performance evaluation (controller evaluation/optimization), experimental design, optimization, etc. Our qualified colleagues have much experience with the following tools which cover a wide range of areas:
  • MSC Adams
    • Co-simulation with Simulink (used for controller integration etc.)
    • Tyre modelling
    • Flexible objects
    • Collision analysis
    • Explosion analysis
    • Large deformations (deep drawing etc.)
  • Project Chrono
    • Soil simulation
    • Granular flow
    • Vehicle-Soil interaction
As well as the following tools specifically targeted at wind power:
  • HAWC2
  • HAWCStab2
  • FLEX5
  • FAST
  • Bladed
However, one of the greatest challenges of dynamic simulation is post-processing of data from the tools listed above. Therefore, our employees often use programs such as MATLAB and the development language Python in order to extract, process and visualize results so that they are easy to understand for a wide range of people, which helps to maximize the value of the conducted analyses. As regards standards and the basis of calculation for dynamic simulation, our employees have in-depth knowledge of IEC 61400-1 (edt. 3 and 4) as well as additional standards (IEC 61400-12, IEC 61400-13, DIBt 2012, etc.) which specifically focus on wind turbines.
