About Thunderbird's (TPC) Relationship & Work with siemens

TPC’s original development plan anticipated building a scale model, testing it in a wind, tunnel and then, based on wind tunnel data, designing and manufacturing a prototype commercial PowerStack Turbine.

This extremely expensive and time-consuming protocol was replaced by using Siemens’ world-renowned CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulation technology; which permits analysis of a software scale model, in a software wind tunnel.

Analysis and interpretation of Siemens’ CFD data, was conducted by TPC’s experts, Richard Sutz and Peter Jenkins, inventors of TPC’s PowerStack turbine, which in turn permitted TPC to move directly to the manufacturing stage of its protype turbine engineering, design, construction, placement, testing and data collection. This is the culmination of years of hard work finally realized!
