Simulation of Power Generation Technology

Simulation of Power Generation Technology

The social, economic and political issues surrounding the UK’s future energy policy have kept the subject of power generation in the headlines for many months, with no clear direction in sight. One thing that is clear, however, is that regardless of the technology used – from traditional gas & coal power stations, to wind & wave generation and, of course, the nuclear option – advanced simulation will play a role in ensuring that the technology is as robust, as cost-effective and as efficient as possible.

This seminar brings together a variety of presentations from leading industrial experts, demonstrating how advanced FE simulation is being deployed to assist in the design, development and implementation of future power generation technologies.
