Improve development processes with advanced engineering simulation

Reading time: 2 minutes


Despite market volatility and tight profit margins, the energy and utilities (E&U) industry faces constant pressure to increase output while reducing emissions and waste.

To meet these objectives without significantly raising costs, E&U businesses must embrace innovation by connecting simulation models to their physical assets. This enables a more comprehensive digital twin, leading to improved development processes, more effective modeling and enhanced prototyping of innovative new plant and system designs.

Applying multi-physics simulation in the energy industry

Despite fast-changing energy industry market conditions, equipment and systems development processes have been slowed by reliance on physical prototype models. These physical models are produced before undergoing testing and iterations, leading to cost increases and delaying deployment.

E&U businesses can now accelerate development using multi-physics simulation software that more accurately predicts new design behaviors before prototyping. New designs validated through multi-physics simulation have a much higher probability of performing as expected during physical testing. By reducing expensive iterations, final product designs are completed faster, lowering costs and accelerating deployment.

Continuous improvement across the energy supply chain

Whether you’re re-engineering your current supply chain or decarbonizing with renewable energy, E&U businesses require new ways of improving operating capabilities and correcting performance deficiencies.

By combining advanced engineering simulation tools with high-performance computing (HPC) and connecting the digital twin to physical plant assets, your engineering teams will better understand the complex physics within your operating systems. This promotes continuous improvement across the energy supply chain while generating new value sources for your business and customers.

Leveraging engineering simulation to improve plant processes

Advanced engineering simulation, combined with integrated design and data analytics, enables the generation of an executable digital twin. This improves operations by helping your team better predict and optimize the behavior of production and process systems.

By leveraging engineering simulation across your enterprise, you can lower production and engineering costs while improving overall performance.
