TURBOTECH Revolutionizes Hybrid-Electric Aircraft With ANSYS

martes, 5 de noviembre de 2019





press release




TURBOTECH is leveraging ANSYS' (NASDAQ: ANSS) industry-leading simulation solutions to transform aeronautical propulsion. Through the ANSYS Startup Program, TURBOTECH is developing an energy storage system capable of powering the hybrid-electric aircraft of the future.




As aerospace manufacturers turn to electrification to reduce emissions, boost efficiency and lower operating costs, engineers race to solve unprecedented design and power challenges. TURBOTECH uses ANSYS fluids solutions to develop regenerative cycle turbogenerators based on small turbines that recover energy from exhaust gases to reduce fuel consumption. By recharging batteries in-flight, the turbogenerators can improve the endurance of electric aircrafts by 10x — enabling significant weight and cost savings.The turbogenerators can produce electricity from virtually any type of renewable flammable material, including bio-fuel, bio-gas, hydrogen and conventional fuels.

"Developing a turbine is a very complex and iterative process. ANSYS simulation solutions enable us to solve complex calculations for turbines and compressors, replace physical prototypes with virtual prototypes and enhance design exploration," said Damien Fauvet, CEO at TURBOTECH. "By 2020, our patented technology will have initiated a revolution in aeronautical propulsion, targeting new markets and opportunities for electrification and autonomy."

"The global microturbines market is projected to reach $420 million by 2025. TURBOTECH's vision for the future of hybrid-electric propulsion systems will transform that market and disrupt the aerospace industry," said Paolo Colombo, industry director, aerospace and defense at ANSYS. "As part of the ANSYS Startup Program, TURBOTECH will deliver the next generation of engines with less noise, lower environmental impact and greater flight endurance."

As part of the ANSYS Startup Program, TURBOTECH has access to simulation software bundles that are specifically built to help the company innovate quickly and cost-effectively. The program empowers entrepreneurs around the world to transform their companies from startups to industry leaders. Since inception, the ANSYS Startup Program has worked with over 740 startups, more than 170 in the aerospace and defense industry.

ANSYS To Extend Microsoft Azure Digital Twins With Physics-Based Simulations





press releqse




PITTSBURGH, Nov. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) is working with Microsoft to extend Microsoft Azure Digital Twins with ANSYS ® Twin Builder™ to enable mutual customers to significantly improve operations. The collaboration will empower Microsoft's enterprise customers to more accurately predict an asset's future performance and reduce unscheduled downtime expenses — enabling users to slash product maintenance costs and speed high-quality products to market.




Industrial companies are investing millions of dollars to build, maintain and track the performance of remotely deployed Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled assets, machinery and vehicles. To maximize a product's sustainability and efficiency in the field, operators require a digital twin — a virtual prototype of a deployed asset's complete system. Operators rely on digital twin data to enhance preventive maintenance programs, pioneer next-generation business models and rapidly improve product development.

Azure Digital Twins help create comprehensive models of physical environments with full support for two-way communication to IoT and Edge devices. Through the collaboration, manufacturers that model and connect assets using Azure Digital Twins can optimize asset production and operations using ANSYS Twin Builder. By using compute integration and digital twin definition language standard, ANSYS and Microsoft make it easier for users to adopt and deploy digital twins.

"As industrial companies require comprehensive field data and actionable insights to further optimize deployed asset performance, ecosystem partners must collaborate to form business solutions," said Eric Bantegnie, vice president and general manager at ANSYS. "ANSYS Twin Builder's complementary simulation data stream augments Microsoft Azure IoT Services and greatly enhances their customers' understanding of asset performance."

Sam George, Corporate Vice President of Azure IoT at Microsoft Corp., said, "As Microsoft Azure customers adopt IoT and Digital Twins to understand their business assets in real time, many are now looking for analytics tools that help them find new insights. Collaborating with ANSYS to extend Azure Digital Twins provides our customers with an understanding of their deployed assets' performance by leveraging physics and simulation-based analytics."
