SAMCEF for Wind Turbines provides engineers with a very easy access to detailed linear or non-linear analyses of all relevant Wind Turbine components (e.g. gearboxes, blades, generatorsâ€¦). It includes advanced modeling capabilities for most usual gearbox designs (e.g. planetary stages, helical parallel stages...). Several models for synchronous and asynchronous generators are available, that can be controlled either directly in SAMCEF or alternatively through digital control boxes imported from external functional simulation tools like MATLAB Simulink.
SAMCEF for Wind Turbines analyses results can be blades deformed geometry, mode shapes, kinematical modes, strains, stresses in any structural component but also time evolution of gear or bearing forces, shaft torques... Moreover, SAMCEF for Wind Turbines is also designed to be used in combination with the optimization platform BOSS quattro to produce the optimal design of the global Wind Turbine system or of specific components.
