Mixed Reality Simulators for Wind Energy Education is a US Dept. of Education FIPSE funded project to develop a variety of simulators and content to improve the training of professionals for the rapidly growing Wind Energy industry.
3-D wind field analysis used to construct power density maps for wind energy, analysis of wind turbine blades, and contaminant dispersion for emergency response.
As part of efforts in wind energy education, Purdue University Calumet has installed a wind Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) on campus to generate electricity and provide students with a functional tool for learning the concepts associated with wind energy. Simulation and Visualization were used to help determine placement of the turbine.
A coal power station has several coal fired boilers generating electricity via steam turbines. The boilers exhaust flue gas through a horizontal Y-section to merge flows from two boilers to an environmental monitoring station and then a stack.
