Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to judge on layout and operational behavior of wind power generators. They will learn on how to plan wind power turbines and wind parks. Teaching goals are: Expertise: 30 %, Methodology: 30 %, System Engineering 30 %, Social Skills: 10 %


The eligible module firstly treats basic knowledge on wind outcome and on wind turbine characteristics. Another part deals with requirements from grid operators and legal aspects. Based on the constraints from turbine and grid sides, different technological approaches for the drivetrain including gears, electrical machines, and electronic power converters are discussed and evaluated. The last chapter explains the design of wind parks.
