Ablauf der Lehrveranstaltung - Course procedure

The course will begin with introduction of basic aerodynamics of airfoil and rotating wind turbine blade. The computational approaches to evaluate the aerodynamics of wind turbine will be presented in the subsequent chapters, this includes the understanding of common parameters in wind turbine aerodynamics and losses which my occur during operation. Having a good understanding in the aerodynamics, the topic is extended to acoustics of the turbine covering the type, mechanisms and how to compute the noise emanating from the turbine. Lastly, a real project work will be introduced to enable the students to get to know the engineering approach commonly used in industry. Basic programming language will be shortly introduced, and the students will compare the results with the software package B-GO developed at IAG.
