Hydro and Wind Power Plants (ECM 03)
Hydro and Wind Power Plants
The students understand the technology of wind power and hydro power plants. They are able to perform a first design for a specific plant. The students know the environmental impact of hydro and wind power and can judge the impact of environmental protection on permit procedures. They are capable to perform a feasibility study for a wind power plant or hydro power plant covering aspects of technical potential, basic design of the plant, environmental impact, permit procedure and economics.
Measurement techniques and their field of application are known. The signal recording, processing and display are known from own experience during the lab work. The students are able to define the measuring equipment when investigating the behaviour of apparatus and machines in energy conversion plants. The students are familiar with the components of a measuring chain.
