Skills to be acquired in this module

The students acquire an advanced knowledge in the field of wind energy applications. Special emphasis is on connecting physical and technical skills with the know-how in the fields of logistics, management, environment, finances, and economy. Practice-oriented examples enable the students to assess and classify real wind energy projects. Special situations such as offshore wind farms and wind farms in non-European foreign countries are included to give the students an insight into the crucial aspects of wind energy also relating to non-trivial realizations as well as to operating wind farm projects.

Module contents

Basics of Wind Energy

-      Physical properties of fluids

-      Wind characterization and measurements

-      Aerodynamics of wind energy conversion

-      Dimensional analysis (pi-theorem)

-      Wind turbine performance

-      Design of wind turbines

Selected Topics in Energy Meteorology

Das Seminar behandelt jeweils semesterweise Themenblöcke aus dem Bereich der meteorologischen Randbedingungen der Wind- und Solarenergie.

Windenergierelevante Beispiele sind: Offshore-spezifische Windbedingungen und deren Einfluss auf Windparks; Strömungsmodelle für Windfelder innerhalb und im Nachlauf von Windparks; großräumige meteorologische Einflüsse auf die Netzeinspeisung von Windenergie; numerische Methoden der windenergie-spezifischen Strömungsmodellierung.
 

Advanced Wind Energy Meteorology

-      Dynamics of horizontal flow (forces, equation of motion, geostrophic wind, frictional effects, general circulation)

-      Atmospheric boundary layer (turbulence, vertical structure, special boundary layer effects)

-      Atmospheric flow modeling: Linear models, RANS & LES models

-      Wind farm modeling

-      Offshore-specific conditions

-      Resource assessment & wind power forecasting

-      Wind measurements & statistics

 

Wind Energy Application - From Wind Resources to Wind Farm Operation

-      Abschätzung von Windenergie-Ressourcen (Weibull Verteilung, Grundlagen der WAsP Methode, Langzeit-Korrektur von Windmessdaten, Einfluss der Schichtungsstabilität, Windertrags- Abschätzungen, Ermittlung jährlicher Windertragspotentiale)

-      Nachlaufeffekte und Windparks (Wiederherstellung des ursprünglichen Windfeldes in der Nachlaufströmung von Windturbinen, Grundlagen des Risø Models, Effizienz von Windturbinen in Windparks, Effekte von Windparks)
 

Windpark Betrieb (Einflüsse auf den Energieertrag von Windparks)
