phy649 - Design of Wind Energy Systems (Veranstaltungsübersicht)

Institut für Physik 6 KP
Semesterveranstaltungen Sommersemester 2024
Lehrveranstaltungsform: Vorlesung
Hinweise zum Modul
Wind Energy Utilization (Bachelor) or Wind Energy (Master)
Prüfungsleistung Modul
Internship report: Between 15 and 30 pages

The students attending the course will have the possibility to expand and sharpen of their knowledge about wind turbine design from the basic courses. The lectures include topics covering the whole spectrum from early design phase to the operation of a wind turbine. Students will learn in exercises how to calculate and evaluate design aspects of wind energy converters.

At the end of the lecture, they should be able to:

- estimate the site specific energy yield,

- calculate the aerodynamics of wind turbines using the blade element momentum theory,

- model wind fields to obtain specific design situations for wind turbines,

- estimate the influence of dynamics of a wind turbine, especially in the context of fatigue loads,

- transfer their knowledge to more complex topics such as simulation and measurements of dynamic loads,

- calculate the economic aspects of wind turbine
