Engineering Simulation Solutions for the Power Generation Industry

In the increasingly competitive energy market, utilities and equipment manufacturers alike are turning to ANSYS to give them the technological advantage that comes from a better understanding of their equipment and processes. Whether simulating a furnace, hydraulic turbine, or entire wind farm, ANSYS presents a complete picture of the power source's operation. With this information, engineers can identify areas where there are deficiencies and, more importantly, establish their causes.

This knowledge can help to direct design improvements or operating strategies that can be tested with the model before they are implemented. For example, boiler operation can be optimized to reduce fuel consumption, pollutant emissions, slagging and degradation of the tubes and downtime through prolonged component life, while maintaining satisfactory levels of residual carbon-in-ash, and better flexibility in plant operation can be achieved.
