The Faculty Board of Science and Technology
A Bachelor's degree in engineering, science or social science. Also required is participation in Wind Power Development and Management, 15 credits. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
describe how wind turbines work using aerodynamic theory
evaluate wind resources using meteorological theory
assess the effects of wake interaction between wind turbines depending on distance and background conditions
evaluate different calculation methods used for wind resource assessment
describe different measurement methods used for wind resource assessment as well as evaluate their benefits and drawbacks
The course gives an overview of wind resource estimation. Meteorological and aerodynamic theories are essential parts of the course content. Different calculation and measurement methods will be addressed and critically evaluated to give the student the knowledge and the tools to choose methods according to the requirements of a specific situation. A part of the course is training in wind energy calculation software like WindPRO, where theoretical knowledge is put in practical use.
Lectures, seminars, laboratory classes, field and group work.
Written assignments, active participation at seminars as well as oral presentations (2 credits). Written exam (3 credits).
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
The course cannot be included in the same degree as 1GV138 and 1GV151.
