CURSUS INTRODUCTION OFFSHORE WIND
5 november @ 08:00 - 6 november @ 17:00
In this two-day course participants will gain insight into the complete offshore wind energy playing field, from technical engineering aspects to the political and societal context.
Learning to speak a common language and understanding every aspect of this rapidly growing industry is of great importance for a fruitful and economically viable future. In this two-day course participants will gain insight into the complete offshore wind energy playing field. This course also covers the influencing aspects of wind energy technology. Furthermore, besides the focus on technical and engineering aspects, political and social influences are also regarded.
To hand over this knowledge the lectures will focus on theory, industry practice and lessons learned from the experts in this field. These lectures will be accompanied by four practical cases in which the gained knowledge will immediately be put into practice. The cases will include calculating the energy yield of a wind turbine, creating a simple monopile design, building a small-scale wind turbine and eventually constructing a complete offshore wind farm in our lab.
