The engineering industry is alight with the phrase “Digital Twin” — a tool in the armoury of someone tasked with making decisions based on data. But what about when the system you are modelling gets really complicated?

First, why is there such a buzz? Applications are widely varied, but let’s look at one specific case: operation of a large wind farm. In a typical 600MW Offshore Wind Farm, figures suggest that digitalisation can unlock a 2% increase in yield, a 10% increase in asset lifetime and a staggering 15% reduction in operations and maintenance cost…
