A Peformance-Enhancing Algorithm: LCM and ReWaG are building a Generator for a Power Station

About 15,000 CPU hours were needed to compute the permanent magnet synchronous generator for the hydroelectric power station “Marktwehr” in the municipality of Purgstall on the river Erlauf (in the district of Scheibbs). It is now connected to the grid, producing 700 kW and supplying approximately 1,100 households with clean electricity. The LCM simulation models had calculated an efficiency of 97.5% for the generator. The test rig also confirms that the LCM algorithm is evidently performance enhancing.
