Akselos and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have won a grant from the Swiss Innovation Agency (Innosuisse), worth 1.2 million Swiss francs to deliver a structural design and assessment tool for wind turbines.
The project aims to increase the computational capabilities of wind turbine applications. Currently, the high computational demands of simulating large assets limits the number of designs that realistically can be explored. The research, carried out by Dean Jan Hesthaven and Prof. Annalisa Buffa from EPFL, alongside engineers from Akselos, will expand the engineering limits of new turbine designs.
