Main field(s) of study and in-depth level:
Wind Power Project Management A1F
Fail (U), Pass (3), Pass with credit (4), Pass with distinction (5)
The Faculty Board of Science and Technology
A Bachelor's degree in engineering, science or social science. Also required is 60 credits at Master's level in wind power project management including Project Course: Feasibility Study of a Wind Power Project, 10 credits, and Wind Resource Assessment, 5 credits, as well as 30 credits in mathematics, and 15 credits in Physics and/or Mechanics. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
After having passed the course the student should be able to
Apply meteorological theory in order to determine wind resources
Apply fluid mechanics and numeric methods to determine wind resources
Plan the execution of a measurement campaign
Evaluate measurement data
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).
Lectures, seminars, laboratory classes and group work.
Written assignments, active participation at seminars as well as oral presentations (3 credits) Written exam (6 credits) Project work (6 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.
