Please notice

From December 1st 2022, the price of the Online Master in Wind Energy and the related courses will change.

If you sign up for spring courses no later than December 1st 2022, you will be charged the current course fee of 11,000 DKK.

The spring courses include: Offshore Wind Farm Planning, Hybrid Power Plants, Wind Energy in Society, Aerodynamics and Aeroelesticity, and Grid Connection and Integration of Wind Power.

If you sign up for Master courses after December 1st 2022, you will be charged 15,000 DKK for each Master course.

Measurement Techniques in Wind Energy

During the course, you will learn about the measurement techniques used in and around wind turbines, including the use of the relevant international standards and evaluation of uncertainty.

Through the course session, you will work with the following:

  • Data acquisition and data management
  • Measurement uncertainty
  • Wind measurements
  • Wind turbine power performance measurement
  • Wind turbine loads and structural response measurements
  • Wind turbine noise measurements
  • Wind energy measurement standards

Learning objectives

After completing the course, you will able to:

  • Design outlines of data acquisition systems considering the requirements and the local conditions.
  • Organize wind measurements in a database.
  • Perform quality control on wind measurements.
  • Define the concept of uncertainty for a measured quantity.
  • Identify relevant measurement standards in wind energy.
  • Produce a cup calibration report from wind tunnel measurements including assessment of uncertainty.
  • Analyze wind speed measurements for a wind resource assessment.
  • Determine wind turbine power performance from measurements.
  • Determine structural properties for a wind turbine from measurements.
  • Select the most suitable wind measurement technology.
  • Explain different methods for structural loads measurements on wind turbines.
  • Explain wind turbine noise measurements.
