GE Research Team Use Supercomputer Help Find Green Solutions

Share post:

General Electric (GE) will use one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers to advance research projects that could potentially boost clean power production.

Last July, the US Department of Energy awarded more than seven million hours of supercomputer node time to 20 research teams, with two GE Research teams among the winners.

Known as “Summit,” the supercomputer built by IBM has a system performance equivalent to 70 million iPhone 11s.

GE plans to implement two projects on Summit, both focused on renewable energy generation: one team will foster research in the field of offshore wind energy research, while the other will use machine learning to optimize the physical design of jet engines and turbines for power generation. <span style=”font-weight: 400;”></span> <span style=”font-weight: 400;”></span> <span style=”font-weight: 400;”></span>

The supercomputer, with 200 petaflops of computing power, is sure to significantly push both research projects efforts, with GE targeting even projects moving forward.
