ECTS points: 6 ECTS
Number of classes per week: 3+0+0+3
Lecturer: Asst. Prof. Dr. Sofija Nikolova-Poceva
Course Goals (acquired competencies): Upon completing this course, the student acquires knowledge about how to use wind energy for energy purposes. The student is able to use modern methods for short-term prediction of the produced electrical power from wind power plants.
Course Syllabus: Turbulence and obstacles. Acceleration effect. Roughness of the terrain. Wake effect. Variation of wind speed with height. Models for wind data analysis. Approaches for estimation of the available wind energy potential of the potential location. Modeling of wind turbine power curve. Development of a model of power curve of entire wind power plant consists of different types of wind turbines. Methods for determination of electrical energy produced by wind turbine. Formulation of the problem of forecasting the production of electrical power from wind power plant (WPP). Methods for short-term forecasting of electrical power produced by WPP. Defining an appropriate protocol for evaluation of methods for prediction of WPP power production. Analysis of different scenarios of wind turbines layout in a wind power plant and their comparison in terms of the expected production of electrical power. Combination of wind power plants with conventional power plants (thermal power plants, storage hydro power plants and pumped storage hydro power plants).
