Description

How tall is a modern wind turbine and how can it possibly generate power from the wind? This course gives an overview of key aspects in wind energy engineering. Whether you are looking for general insight in this green technology or your ambition is to pursue a career in wind energy engineering, ‘Wind Energy’ is an excellent starting point.

Experts located in the wind pioneering country of Denmark will take you on a tour through the most fundamental disciplines of wind energy research such as wind measurements and resource assessment, aerodynamics, wind turbine technology, structural mechanics, materials, financial and electrical systems.

You will gain a rational understanding of wind energy engineering and, through hands-on exercises, you will learn to perform wind energy calculations based on simple models. Working with the different course disciplines will give you a taste of what wind energy engineering is all about. This allows you to identify the most interesting or relevant aspects of wind energy engineering to be pursued in your future studies or in your professional career.

I am a Senior Scientist at DTU Wind Energy working with mapping of winds over the ocean from satellite observations. Working with science that can be applied directly in the wind energy industry is very motivating. I coordinate the development of online courses at DTU Wind Energy and I am very interested in how we can make the experience of following an online course as good, or even better, than taking the same course in a classroom. My nationality is Danish and I Iive in Roskilde, Denmark.
