Wind Energy Laboratory

Module: Wind Energy Laboratory

Course language:

English

Structure:

The modularly structured course consists of a compulsory course as well as two elective events, only one of which must be attended.

Compulsory course:

Workshop during every semester break: “Construction of a small Wind Turbine” (course id: 3531 L 024)

Elective courses:

1. Course during the winter semester: “Aeroelastic Simulation of Wind Turbines” (course id: 3531 L 025)

2. Course during the summer semester: “Measurement Techniques and Wind Tunnel testing” (course id: 3531 L 026)

Content:

Compulsory course:

Construction of a small Wind Turbine

·         manufacture all relevant parts of a fully functioning small wind turbine

·         practical, manual work in the workshops of the TU Berlin

·         self-organization in small groups and independent time management and working methods

Elective courses:

1. Aeroelastic Simulation of Wind Turbines

·         application-oriented simulation with the simulation software “QBlade”

·         Airfoil & Blade design

·         BEM Simulations

·         Structural Analysis

·         aeroelastic simulation of wind turbines

2. Measurement Techniques and Wind Tunnel testing

·         measurements on generator, charging electronics and wind tunnel tests

·         use of measurement technology

·         analysis of electro-technical interrelations

·         evaluation and data analysis

·         small programming tasks

Time and location:

The course “Aeroelastic Simulation of Wind Turbines” takes place in the WS 2017/2018 on Wednesday from 2 to 4 pm.

The time and location of the compulsory course will be intimate as soon as possible and can be found with the course id in the education calendar/course directory.

The course can be completed in one semester.

Credit:

Per semester 6 SWS or 6 LP (ECTS)

Prerequisites:

The module based on the "Wind Energy - Fundamentals", "Wind Energy - Project/Deepening" and “Fluid Dynamics I + II". Therefore, the mentioned courses are highly recommended but not a mandatory prerequisite.

Course-Registration:

Registration for the module in the WS 2017/2018 can be done by e-mail from Monday, 18th September -  Monday, 2nd October 2017  by writing an e-mail, subject “Wind Energy Laboratory Registration” to

a.vonbreitenbach@tu-berlin.de.

If the number of applications exceeds the number of places available to attendees, the participants will be selected by lottery (Los-Verfahren).

The course is part of the module list within  M.Sc.Physikalische Ingenieurwissenschaft, M.Sc. Maschinenbau and M.Sc. Regenerative Energiesysteme (Status 12.07.2017)

Other students can attend the course as “Freie Wahl”.
