Studien- und Prüfungsleistungen
The module examination consists of a written exam (90 minutes) at the end of lectures. The purpose of the exam is for students to demonstrate, within limited time, their ability in:
- Explaining the concepts that were covered during the lectures. This implies explaining, among the others, the main physical principles underlying the wind turbine aerodynamics and control, as well as the main features of the wind resource or the distinguish characteristics of offshore wind turbines.
- Solving problems that require using equations that were introduced during the lectures. This includes, among the others, computing the power and other operational parameters of a wind turbine under different environmental conditions, or determining the forces exerted by a section of a wind turbine blade.

Tools allowed in the exam: scientific non-programmable calculator and a note-sheet

Beschreibung
Basic knowledge in engineering mechanics and aerodynamics.
During the course, students will be introduced to the wind energy resource, and will learn the basic principles underlying the energy conversion process from wind, with a particular emphasis on a multidisciplinary view of the problem. At the successful completion of the course, students will achieve a basic solid understanding of the aerodynamics, dynamics and control of wind turbines, as well as of their design and operation, with a good overall knowledge of all principal aspects of wind energy technology.
" Introduction to wind energy, the wind resource and its characteristics.
" Wind turbine types, configurations, components, design of machines and wind farms.
" Wind turbine aerodynamics.
" Dynamics, aeroservoelasticity and control of wind turbines.
" Introduction to off-shore wind, the off-shore environment, support structures, dynamics.
" Introduction to electrical systems and grid integration.

Learning method:
In addition to the individual methods of the students consolidated knowledge is aspired by repeated lessons in exercises and tutorials.

Teaching method:
During the lectures students are instructed in a teacher-centered style. The exercises are held in a student-centered way.
The following kinds of media are used:
- Class room lectures
- Lecture notes (handouts)
- Exercises with solutions as download
Course material will be provided by the instructor.
