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.
