Module Wind Energy Laboratory

"This course is offered by the departments of Fluid System Dynamic and Experimental Fluid Mechanics"

Course Language:



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):


Compulsory course:

  • manufacture all relevant parts of a fully funtioning small wind turbine
  • practical, manual work in the workshops of TU Berlin
  • self-organization in small groups and independent time management and working methods

Elective course:

1. WS 2017 / 2018 - Aeroelastic Simulation of Wind Turbines

  • application-orentd simulation with the simulation software "QBlade"
  • Airfoil & Bladedesign
  • BEM simulations
  • structural analysis
  • aeroelastic simulation of wind turbines

Time and location

The course "Aeroelastic simulation of wind turbines" takes place in the WS 2017/2018 on Wedenesday from 2 to 4 pm.

Time and location of the compulsory course will be announced ASAP and can be found with course id in the university calendar/course catalogue.

The course can be completed in one semester.


Per semester 6 SWS or 6 LP (ECTS)


The module is 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

Course registration for the module in WS 2017/2018 will be from

Monday, 18th September - Monday, 9th October 2017

by email with subject: "Wind Energy Laboratory Registration" to
