Module Wind Energy Laboratory

© TUB Alexander von Breitenbach

The 6 ECTS module  „Wind Energy Laboratory“ is a newly developed course with the intention of giving students with academic experience in wind energy the chance to deepen their existing knowledge in the topic. The development of the course is funded by the program “Studienreformprojekt” and has been undertaken as a co-work of the “FG Experimentelle Strömungsmechanik” and “FG Fluidsystemdynamik”.

The course "Wind Energy Laboratory" gives insight to the wind turbine simulation software QBlade. The course covers airfoil selection, aerodynamic & structural blade design and aeroelastic simulations using the NREL software FAST – Code (Fatigue, Aerodynamics, Structures and Turbulence). The students attending this course will be learning the basic design methods of horizontal axis wind turbines and carry out certification-relevant Design Load Case simulations according to the DIN 61400.


The module is based on the "Wind Energy - Fundamentals", "Wind Energy-Project / Deepening" and "Fluid Dynamics I + II". Therfore, the mentioned courses are highly recommended.

The course is part of the module list within

  •  M.Sc. Physikalische Ingenieurwissenschaft in section 2.2b (Strömungsmechanik Ergänzungsbereich) and section 3 (Projektmodule)
  • M.Sc. Maschinenbau in section 2.3 (Produkte)
  • M.Sc. Regenerative Energiesysteme in section "EVT-Pflichtlabor II" as a "Projekt"

All other students may attend the course as "Freie Wahl" and can contact the "Prüfungsobmann/obfrau" of their course of studies for possible exceptions.


Due to a limitation of available participants, pre-registration to the course is required.

Students who registered within the first registration period 1.10-16.10.18 can participate in the course.

For all other interested students: Please come to the first seminar on Thursday 18.10.18, 9:00 a.m. to room SG-12 105/8 Salzufer 17-19 10587 Berlin. The first seminar will give an overview over the semester.

A second registration period will be opened from 16.10.18 to 23.10.18. If you are interested in attending the course, please register and come to the first seminar.


If the number of participants exceeds the number of available, there will be a lottery.
