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, 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 Power electronics in wind power conversion system Wind turbine systems Offshore wind farms and electrical system optimisation Operation and control of wind turbines and wind farms Wind turbines in power systems

Prerequisites: General knowledge in electrical engineering, preferably have a background at graduate level in electrical engineering.

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.
