About the course

The course focuses on wind resources and combines theory with practice. The theory is studied in terms of meteorology and fluid mechanics. In the portion concerning fluid mechanics, the essential theoretical background for numerical methods is covered. The applied portion contains a measurement campaign, which gives knowledge about equipment and data storage, analysis and filtration, and a simulation task which is solved using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
