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.

An overview of wind energy basic calculations.

This course is a good overview of wind energy in technical and economical aspects.

I tried to get a general overview of Wind Energy and the course covered quite a lot.

Very good overview of wind energy.

Recommanded to have a good overview of wind energy !

very interesting overview of wind energy.

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.

i love this course muy completo, te lleva por todas las partes de la generacion eolica nice course complete basics in lecture and real time problems in quiz help to understand concept better It's a great course, many engineering topics Very nice course!

Es un buen curso para introducirse en el mundo de la energía eólica.

es una de las fuentes alternas de energía de la cual hay muy poco estudio en mi país Excelent course!!!!!!

El curso es muy completo, al finalizar se manejarán muchos conceptos desde el manejo del proyecto de la planta energética hasta el cálculo de resistencia en los álabes del rotos.

En mi opinión, es un curso que vale totalmente la pena hacer, con el fin de introducirse en el mundo de la energía eólica y conocer conceptos nuevos.100% recomendable Good Course Muy buena introducción al tema de la Energía Heólica.
