Ansys solutions power improved product performance during operation through predictive analytics that aid asset management decisions, company says.
March 11, 2021
ENGIE, a supplier of energy efficiency services, is helping companies transition to carbon-free energy by employing Ansys simulation solutions. With Ansys' physics-based digital twin technology, ENGIE Lab CRIGEN is developing a fast, high-fidelity platform to deliver 3D computational fluid dynamics results in real time–reportedly reducing companies' costs, environmental impact and time to market, the companies say.
Ansys Twin Builder creates simulated replicas of in-service physical assets and presents relevant, high-fidelity information in real time. These digital twins strengthen ENGIE Lab CRIGEN's zero-carbon strategic initiative, enabling engineers to control industrial processes, anticipate carbon reduction challenges and lower maintenance costs, according to the companies.
“ENGIE Lab CRIGEN is committed to meeting ambitious environmental goals as we help organizations transition to zero-carbon energy,” says Guy-Alexandre Grandin, R&D project manager, ENGIE Lab CRIGEN. “Transforming existing technologies and innovating new solutions to meet this challenge is a time-consuming and cost-prohibitive process, and our platform needs an extremely high level of coupling between the real and the virtual world.
“With Ansys solutions, we can improve product performance during operation and provide insight into predictive analytics and asset performance management decisions, regardless of the environment,” Grandin adds.
“Ansys digital twins empower manufacturing companies to transform their businesses through cost savings, new revenue streams and process optimization,” says Prith Banerjee, chief technology officer, Ansys. “Our combination of multiphysics and analytics models supports ENGIE Lab CRIGEN as it tackles the challenge of sustainability across corporations and governments and shapes the future of zero-carbon energy.”
