Wind Turbine Modelling and Analysis

Already in 1971, Wölfel was one of the first engineering companies in Germany offering computer-oriented calculations for industrial customers. Due to our many years of experience in the fields of finite element analysis and multi-body simulation, we can analyze even highly complex structures such as wind turbines or the interaction of vibrations and sound emissions. Depending on the problem, numerical analysis FE-solvers (e.g. Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA Abaqus) or MBS-software (e.g. Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA Simpack) can be used.

From the rotor blade to the hub, gearbox and nacelle to the tower – we are able to evaluate your entire wind turbine. More components such as a flexible bedplate and a  can be added for highly detailed analysis. Fully parameterized models result in high efficiency, highly non-linear model behavior in realistic results.

  • Complete system analysis with different levels of fidelity
  • Detailed component analysis
  • Strain, stress and fatigue analysis
