Ian McGann - Turbine

Five reasons why Executable Digital Twins are set to dominate engineering in 2023

I spoke with Siemens xDT expert Ian McGann and asked him about the five things that make executable digital twins practical and relevant in 2023, based mainly on his recent experiences in building digital twins of offshore wind turbines.

Why are power transformers so noisy?

Reduce power transformer noise in the design stage, with a multi-physics simulation and design approach.
