Wind Energy

Overview Industry Overview:

The concept behind wind energy seems simple – especially when you consider that we have been harvesting it for thousands of years, for uses such as sailing and grinding grain – but implementation of electricity-generating wind turbines can be more challenging. Upwards of 8,000 parts are required for a single turbine, which converts kinetic wind energy (itself a conversion of solar energy caused by uneven global heating, surface irregularities, and planetary rotation) into mechanical energy which is then generated into electricity.

Wind power is one of the most widely-embraced alternative, renewable energy sources around the world. Around 4% of worldwide electric power usage is generated from wind turbines, and Denmark alone generates approximately 40% of its electric power from wind. More than 200,000 turbines – both on-land and offshore, and horizontal- and vertical-axis structures – are in operation worldwide, and 80% of global citizens support the implementation of wind power solutions.

App Common Applications:

  • Aerodynamic modelling
  • Transmission networks
  • Grid balancing
  • Wind power forcasting
  • Ram air turbines
  • Microgeneration
  • Small-scale wind power
  • Wind-diesel hybrid power system
  • Controlled aerodynamic instability phenomena
  • Underperformance, wake turbulence, etc.
  • Wind energy supply chain
  • Wind farm controls, etc.
  • Turbine construction, transportation
  • Negotiating power purchases, etc.
  • Construction costs, financing
  • Noise and health effects
  • Ecological impacts
  • Diagnostic services and maintenance
