The participants will be introduced to wind data analysis and calculation of key characteristics to describe wind loading and wind energy potential at a specific location. Static and dynamic wind effects on structures will be studied to provide basis for a reliability analysis.
Special considerations will be on wind turbine design, both on-shore and off-shore types. The design will be based on virtual experimentation technology (i.e., finite element modelling). The students will gain knowledge on wind turbine, power distribution and power storage design.
Identification of energy transfer processes between wind and structures
