Aims of the module and acquired skills

  • Understanding the meteorological requirements for a meaningful generation of electricity from wind and solar power
  • Gaining insight into the operation of an electrical grid with weather-dependent renewable energies
  • Project and seminar give the opportunity to deepen knowledge in one of the three fields “wind power”, “solar power”, or “grid operation”

Contents of the module

  • Physical basics of energy supply
