For the past 5 years, wind energy has been growing at a rate of over 200% thanks to technological innovations and operational improvements.
Wind turbines have been getting larger and lighter thanks to the use of advanced materials such as carbon fiber and advanced fabric composites which deliver large improvements in efficiency by taking advantage of increased wind speeds at higher elevations and larger rotor diameters.
For Wind Turbines are getting larger to improve performance. Larger wind turbines add complications through higher loads, both mechanical and electrical/thermal. ASR’s mechanical engineering services can ensure all mechanical and thermal aspects of the wind turbine meet requirements. From the design of the composite rotor using CATIA composite design to Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for wind and rotational loads and tool surface compensations to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for thermal management, ASR will continue to contribute to the performance improvement of wind energy.
