Course: “Wind Energy” August 2016
Knowledge – After the course, the participants will have an understanding of the following topics.
This one week course is dedicated to wind energy. What are the different technologies used in wind turbines, and what are their advantages and disadvantages? How much wind do we have? How can we connect our wind farm to the grid? Resource assessment and grid connection are two aspects of the project cycle which will be presented and discussed in more detail, since they are the most important aspects of a successful project.
You will receive a short introduction to the leading software tool for wind farm planning. A field trip to one of the most successful manufacturers of wind turbines worldwide will give insight in producing and assembling the components, and will show the biggest onshore wind turbine with a performance of 7.5 MW. A visit of a wind farm with access to a wind turbine (AN Bonus 1.3, Siemens Company) complements the lessons - an outstanding experience not only interesting for wind energy experts.
