Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is currently the only proven large-scale (>100 MW) energy storage technology. The benefits of PHES on electrical system operations are well documented in textbooks and journals. The flexible generation of PHES can provide upregulation and downregulation in power systems. Furthermore, the quick start capabilities of PHES make it suitable for black starts and for the provision of spinning and standing reserves.

Announcements CD-adapco will host a Mixing Simulation Webinar on December 9, 2016.

Poor mixing can result in the loss of millions in investment. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) simulations are used to answer many unknowns in mixing that cannot be found by analytical or experimental methods. Admixtus, a virtual product development tool that seamlessly integrates with engineering simulation software and automates workflow, can provide engineers the answers to these unknowns.
