Using supercomputers at UT Austin’s Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), a team of researchers from UT Dallas has developed a new way to extract more power from the wind. Their findings, as reported in Wind Energy and Renewable Energy, indicate the potential to increase wind power generation by up to six to seven percent. To test their new approach, the team ran virtual wind experiments using Stampede2 and Lonestar 5 – two of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. Read more.
