Bladed

Bladed

Bladed wind turbine simulation tool is key for optimizing your turbine at every phase of its design.

When designing wind turbines, you need to be sure your system will perform optimally, often in harsh conditions, throughout its entire life. Understanding turbine behaviour before manufacture saves you time and - most importantly - money.

Our Bladed device modelling software helps you gain that insight. It enables you build a numerical model of your wind turbine and its planned environment. You can then run simulations covering all the different conditions it will experience during its lifetime.

Tidal Bladed Software

Tidal Bladed

Focused on ensuring design reliability and survivability, Tidal bladed is the only validated, industry-standard tool for simulating tidal turbines at the design stage.

Whether you are designing new turbine concepts or adapting existing ones, simulating the concept prior to development is a key step in optimizing designs. For this, a straightforward but comprehensive software modelling tool is invaluable. It helps move the concept to the detailed design stage, and ensure design reliability and survivability at a technical level.

Tidal bladed is the industry-standard tidal turbine modelling and allows you to visualize your bespoke tidal turbine design. Fast, easy-to-use and delivering excellent results, it provides you with accurate numerical load and performance estimates.

WindHelm and SunHelm portfolio management software

WindHelm and SunHelm portfolio management software

A single system for monitoring, reporting and analysis across your entire wind and solar portfolio.

Monitoring and reporting on a portfolio of wind and solar farms can be a real challenge, especially if you run sites with different technologies, manufacturers and locations. This increases both the need for and difficulty of effective management.

Our WindHelm and SunHelm portfolio management software can take the load off. It offers a single platform for monitoring, optimizing and controlling any combination of wind and solar PV installations, across any number of farms. WindHelm and SunHelm gives you uniform access to and analysis of SCADA data for all your projects. This facilitates intelligent operational decisions, therefore maximizing availability, efficiency, production and financial return.

With WindHelm and SunHelm, you can see the current status, collect data and produce reports for your entire portfolio. They automate the whole process, freeing up your people to do the more in-depth analysis.

Windfarmer

WindFarmer

DNV GL's WindFarmer: Analyst and WindFarmer 5:3 tools help you to understand, and maximize the output and profitability of your wind farm.

If you are planning a wind farm development or looking to make an investment, you need a reliable and trustworthy estimate of the energy production. Throughout the planning process, you will also need to update this estimate many times to understand different wind farm design options. How better to ascertain project viability than with an energy assessment tool based on a proven methodology?

Wavefarmer

WaveFarmer

A powerful array planning tool that enables you to optimize wave farm designs to maximize energy yield and return on investment, whilst minimizing risks.

Wave farms are a rapidly emerging renewable energy technology. Accurate predictions of a wave farm’s energy yield are key to reducing risk and promoting investor and stakeholder confidence. But the hydrodynamics of one wave power device can affect the output of other devices. Up to 25% of an array’s potential output can be lost through these interactions – so optimizing wave farm array design is essential to ensure project success.

Tidal Farmer

TidalFarmer

An indispensable tidal farm planning tool, allowing you to analyse the affects of virtual tidal devices to maximize energy yield and return on investment.

Tidal power is an emerging offshore renewable energy source with an important role in our future energy mix. However, exploiting the motion of ocean currents requires the right planning and array design. The placement of multiple hydrokinetic energy devices can have complex interactions with other devices, influencing the total energy yield. Accurately estimating the energy yield for tidal energy arrays enables stakeholders to have confidence in the return on investment.

WaveDyn

WaveDyn

WaveDyn is DNV GL's indispensable wave energy modelling tool, allowing you to accurately analyse the performance of concept wave energy converter designs.

As the industry looks for more rigorously validated methods for calculating design loads ahead of machine certifications, more complex modelling is needed. Designers need to be able to simulate their designs under a number of different conditions, including maintenance, sea states (with varying weather, calm to extreme) and normal conditions. Complete load calculations are needed for prototype certification, which give an accurate idea of the loads on the machine under a wide range of different operating conditions.
