Welcome to Introduction to Wind Power (Generation and Integration)

Description: The course will provide training and education in the field of wind power engineering, covering the electrical aspects of wind turbine systems, including electrical machines, power electronics and power systems.

The PhD course will include basic knowledge of electrical systems of wind power conversion systems, and operation and control in power systems with high level wind power penetration.

Some of the course contents are based on recently obtained research results.

The main topics are as follows:

Overview of electrical systems of wind energy conversion systems
Wind power generators
Configuration and control of power electronic conversion system
Operation and control of wind turbines and wind farms
Parameter estimation, monitoring and diagnosis of wind turbine systems
Offshore wind farms and electrical system optimisation
Wind turbines in power systems
Prerequisites: General knowledge in electrical engineering, preferably have a background at graduate level in electrical engineering.

Form of evaluation: Mini-project

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
