Description:

The course will provide training and education in the field of wind power engineering, including general knowledge of wind turbine systems, mainly covering the electrical aspects of wind turbine systems, including electrical machines, power electronics and power systems, etc.
The PhD course will include basic knowledge of wind turbine systems, as well as electrical systems of wind power 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 wind power development
• Wind energy and wind turbine systems
• Wind power generators
• Configuration and control of power electronic conversion system for wind energy conversion system
• Operation and control of wind turbines and wind farms
• Offshore wind power system
• Wind power plant design and optimisation
• Transmission system for offshore wind power plants
• Wind power integration to power grid
• Wind power impacts on power system stability and protection
