Hello
I want to simulate a cable (cylinder) in free air. The wind (natural convection) plays a role in this. So I wanted to ask if the Partial Differential Equation Toolbox can simulate convection or flows around an object.

Although the PDE does not feature pre-defined equations for fluid flow (Navier-Stokes equations), you should be able to define them yourself using the Genral PDE formulation.
Alternatively, you maybe follow this example which seems to be quite similar to your cable in air simulation:
