Description of contents: programme
- Overview: the wind farm project - The Site pre-selection - The characterization of wind resource: Fundamentals, measurements, analysis, modelling and production estimation - The identification of project technical constraints - The processing of the electrical connection - The electrical configuration of the wind farm and its connection - Development of project engineering - The environmental processing - The selection of technology. Procurement process - Construction of wind farm - Operation and Maintenance
Learning activities and methodology
The assessment method will consist of lectures and presentation by students of the proposed works. The lectures are given by proffesionals, specialists in renewable plant project develpment. In addition, students must complete an stage of a wind farm project and the results of this task must be presented and defended in class. In this way, it is intended to promote the student participation in the class and evaluate their ability to carry out a wind farm project.
