This is an amazing course that taught the complete overview of Wind Energy from economy perspective to the engineering part. Truly recommended for anyone that want to learn the basic about wind energy
It's really very useful to research scholars to select different flatforms. I m really enjoying while answering assignments as well as quizes.. the hints that they provided are awesome... Thanks allot

I have a masters in mechanical engineering and wanted to learn about the generalities of wind energy production. If you don't have a background in engineering, a lot of things may be hard to understand The conceptual parts of the course seem too rushed. The inner workings of the aerodynamics of the turbines are not very well explained, the electrical connections and distributions are too superficially mentioned. The structural and fatigue analysis were super brief, which is good. The parts that I enjoyed the most were probably the financial aspects of wind energy production (and the simple exercise for the project evaluation), the variation of wind speeds during day and according to topographies. In conclusion, what I felt with this course, was that the concepts were many times not explained as deeply as they should have compared to the mathematical developments that some formulas have. I was not expecting to have a full electrical installations or fluid dynamics or final elements analysis course applied to wind energy concepts. On the contrary, I could have done without some very specific mathematical emphasis that was put on this course and would have enjoyed a lot more some curious facts and general knowledge about wind turbine control, electricity transport and storage, comparation to other energy sources, wind farm locations, energy production and consumption, energy costs, future developments, etc.

The course is well structured, and the contents are exposed clearly. Probably one of the main problems of the subject "Wind Energy" itself, is it covers many disciplines (Aerodynamics, Mechanics and Machinery, Structural design, Electricity and Grid connection, Financial aspects...), so a 5-Week course had to be quite superficial to cover each of this aspects minimally. For my expectations it was a little bit too simple, but mostly the quizzes were too easy. The hints after the quizz questions were solving the questions and avoiding the beautiful part of the quizzes: playing with the formulae, and interiorizing it.
All in all it was a nice, enjoyable course, but sadly I feel I didn't get deep enough in many of the treated subjects, even for an introductory course.

It's globally a nice course, although you have to keep in mind that it is more like an introduction to the topic rather than a real, full course. I was quite frustrated from time to time that some important and difficult points are not really justified or explained in details, but just given as assumption or obvious concept: If you are familiar with that concept, you will be fine (but probably won't learn that much), while if you are not you will be probably lost. I mean, for a free course this is already a pretty nice job, and I think it is worth to take this course. I would be for sure ready to pay something to get a longer and more detailed course on this topic.

The course covered many different topics. It is a little bit too basic but of great quality. Improvements could be done taking not much time to define some things like those covered on "Important things used in wind energy". I felt each week things where covered more superficially as I advanced un the course. Anyway, I recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the big picture on Wind Energy! The course is taught by world top researchers giving a quick peek of the state of the art in Wind Energy Thanks to DTU for taking the time and effort of making this course! I am looking forward for more DTU courses!

I had initially started the course in order to gain insight more into the role of wind energy, the operations, the components and financing behind it. The course was a little heavy on actual mechanics and turbine output calculations. Would've enjoyed a more descriptive course with more emphasis on the financing and operational side as well as how the wind facilities fit into the grid. That said, it does provide a great basic overview of the concept and the mathematical side is still useful, particularly if interested in the engineering aspect.

Good course but a little more detail with better referencing to links and documents would be more helpful. Also, a little more in-depth info for each topic will also be well appreciated. Overall a good course for beginners like me who knew nothing about Wind Energy before taking this course.

This course needs more solved examples on board similar to the ones on quizzes in order to give students the sense to handle different situations. Also, it needs more explanatory videos during the lecture about real-life wind energy turbines. Overall, the course content is good.
par Chinmay B•
Gets boring after the 2nd week, because only equations are shown and stated, the detailed explanation isn't given. Questions similar to the ones in the quizzes should be introduced and taught about in the videos rather than just theory.
par Meet P•
VERY DEEP KNOWLEDGE IS PROVIDED SMALL AMOUNT OF TIME.
AND QUIZ NUMERICAL
ARE NOT EXPLAINED IN VIDEO BY AN EXAMPLE NUMERICAL.
EXCEPT THAT THIS COURSE WAS VERY HELPFUL
par Güneş E•
Some of the instruction pages were a little bit confusing. Some teachers were just reading slides, that was not very helpful. Needs more verbal information.
par Prachiti B•
Starts well and gets boring towards the end with not much explanation about the numerical problems like in the quiz and the equations in the slides.
par Akshit K S•
Some more work should be done on tutorial of problem solving, Sometimes it is tough to solve the question, especially descriptive type questions.
par Dhwanil M M•
Quiz is really tough. One quiz didnt even have a method of solving, made it really tough to pass

It's a great course and it's help in my study which is renewable energy

This is an introduction course. I would like see more advanced courses.

Should have been more focused on the electrical part.

It's a good course, is just not what I expected
