Wind Energy

How tall is a modern wind turbine and how can it possibly generate power from the wind? This course gives an overview of key aspects in wind energy engineering. Whether you are looking for general insight in this green technology or your ambition is to pursue a career in wind energy engineering, 'Wind Energy' is an excellent starting point. Experts located in the wind pioneering country of Denmark will take you on a tour through the most fundamental disciplines of wind energy research such as wind measurements and resource assessment, aerodynamics, wind turbine technology, structural mechanics, materials, financial and electrical systems. You will gain a rational understanding of wind energy engineering and, through hands-on exercises, you will learn to perform wind energy calculations based on simple models. Working with the different course disciplines will give you a taste of what wind energy engineering is all about. This allows you to identify the most interesting or relevant aspects of wind energy engineering to be pursued in your future studies or in your professional career.

very interesting course in 10 reviews

Very interesting courses and good applications of the theory with real conditions.

Very interesting course which covers the basic concepts of the Wind energy Technology.

Very interesting course.

great course Excelente contenido y material para aprender Great course Very interesting course about basics of wind turbines, and not so difficult.

It is one of my favorite subject of interest.Thank you DTU Very interesting course and well organised by DTU.

Very interesting course, which knowledge you can use directly if you have the luck to work with wind turbines very good course Thanks so much for the course...

This final module would use the learnings and computer-based models developed in the pre Very interesting course.

very interesting course from introduction to design and effects of the environment wind speed, design of blade, generation and integration to the grid this course cover all, very informative and well explained.

so much in 9 reviews

I recommend people interested in setting themselves up for a technical career in the wind energy industry in taking up this course.

I have found this course to be very insightful as what to expect from the wind energy industry.

Very interesting course, well organized, with clear lessons Really interesting course about a basic but complete presentation of wind turbines perfect bases knowledge for wind energy, covering all parts of wind energy industry and science.

The course that changed my life It is very good .i have learn lot of new thing in this course .i already working with wind energy industry .it is very helpful in future .

very great course, if you are new in wind energy industry, you must take this course.

It would have been a great help 10 years ago as I started working in the wind energy industry.

Excellent overview of full scope of wind energy industry with well-structured quizzes to test knowledge.

really enjoyed in 7 reviews

Really enjoyed being part of this amazing course.

Excellent Introductory course about wind turbine technology I really enjoyed this course.

i didn't even know there was that many thins about the Wind Energy Very interesting and easy to understand, really enjoyed this course.

I really enjoyed the aerodynamic section and look forward to more advance modules if any do happen to put out.

I really enjoyed!

Otherwise I really enjoyed the class and the information presented.

I really enjoyed.

little bit in 6 reviews

Some topics are a little bit rushed and I wish they were better explained.

i learn a lot of things from this course, good course............................ sometimes hard sometimes a little bit easier but always interesnting, gives a good overview about the subject and if you believe that the future of the energy is renewable you should do this course.

Some of the instruction pages were a little bit confusing.

It is a little bit too basic but of great quality.

For my expectations it was a little bit too simple, but mostly the quizzes were too easy.

Would be better to go a little bit deeper Very good introduction to wind energy basic concepts.
