NREL's HPC systems support modeling and simulation so researchers can investigate, build and test models of complex phenomena or entire integrated systems, that cannot be directly observed or manipulated in the laboratory, or that are too expensive or too time consuming. Models and visualizations – for example, an entire wind plant or the microfibril structure of plants or evaluating novel materials for photovoltaics – are generating fresh knowledge that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries.
