- describe and reflect on the technical development and innovations of wind turbines
Wind turbine construction, technical functionality and practical applications
This part includes studies of mechanical, electrical and aerodynamic design, grid connectivity as well as construction, operation and maintenance of wind turbines.
Technical specialisations and up to date technical aspects of wind power
This part includes technical specialisation of mechanical, electrical and aerodynamic design, grid connectivity as well as installation, operation and maintenance of wind turbines. The course unit includes also an outlook into other up-to-date aspects of wind turbine technology.
The course is given as a net-based course. Assignments are submitted in the e-classroom on Internet and the student will receive personal feedback by the teacher. A forum for discussion is available.
Written hand-in assignments 5 credits.
Written essays and forum posts 2.5 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 1GV062 or 1GV121, Wind Turbine Technology.
Applies from: Autumn 2021
Some titles may be available electronically through the University library.
