RuggedPOD is designed to be scalable. This is why it is key to determine how it will work in cluster mode.
The team has been able to successfully run a Thermal simulation of 6 RuggedPOD into a field. Thanks to Horizon for providing us access to there Flotherm license to run such computation. The key thing is that no specific interaction appears while the POD are aligned with a 50 cm distance. Each of the POD is 1kW fully loaded. The simulation is performed with 35 C degrees ambiant, and each POD stands 1 m from the ground.
Our next step is to simulate a 3×3 mesh, then a 4×3 and ideally a 4×4 if we do have enough memory on our system. You can see on the following video how heat is exhausted on top of the POD. Heat goes up to 2.5m before being mixed with fresh air.
