Digital Twin in Action

Digital Twin for Sustainable Energy

Improving lifetime value of a fusion powerplant using a physics-based digital twin. Assystem is an international engineering and digital services group focused on low-carbon projects that accelerate the transition to clean energy. Assystem is committed to the development of decarbonized electricity (fusion energy, renewables and electricity grids) and clean hydrogen. The Assystem team wanted to leverage the expensive design models to create a digital twin by inputting the sensor data that was livestreamed from the plant, which helps engineers understand the plant's structural integrity and further optimize inspection and maintenance schedules.

Roundtable: Understanding the Benefits and Hidden Costs of Digital Twins

As faithful digital counterparts of real-world products, digital twins allow you to cost-effectively simulate failure scenarios, implement preventative measures, and extend product lifespans. 

But what are the hidden costs you need to be aware of? 

In this roundtable discussion, we covered:

  • The data pipeline and cloud infrastructure required to set up digital twins
  • Examples of operational digital twins;
  • New possibilities with AI-augmented digital twins

Digital Twin Implementation: A Strategic Tool to Improve Process/Product Capabilities in Sheet Metal Forming

Sheet Metal Forming has different and wide industrial applications (Automotive, White Goods, Aeronautic, etc....). In the metal forming industry, the simulation of processes and the resulting material behavior is of high importance. Important process parameters (e.g., material flow, temperature range, force required), as well as the resulting material characteristics (e.g., strength, residual stress, temperature resistance), can be supported using FEA to replace costly and uneconomical practical tests.

The re-use of knowledge gained from these FEA simulations in combination with data provided by different sensors is the next step towards the implementation of a Digital Twin. Its integration into the IT architecture of a digital factory is inevitable to increase the efficiency and environmental sustainability of processes and products in manufacturing. Therefore the presented project relies on Reduced Order Models in use of Machine Learning approaches as well as an IoT-based dashboard for the combined visualization of actual data and derived KPIs. As a result, the implemented solution enables significant improvement of capabilities in the considered context.
