The following key qualification is offered by the IFB:

Courses of the Stuttgart Wind Energy (SWE)

In the course "Wind energy 1 - Fundamentals of Wind Energy" the students gain knowledge about the basics of wind energy, especially about the physical and technical principles of modern wind turbines. Students will be able to derive simple physical equations and correlations and to understand and explain their significance in relation to the use of wind energy. Based on an understanding of the individual sub-disciplines (aerodynamics, structural dynamics, electrical engineering, etc.), the students will be able to explain the structure and functionality of the overall wind turbine system and carry out elementary design calculations in selected areas. After completion of the course, the students have built up the essential competences which enable them to familiarise themselves with special fields in the field of wind energy (wind farm planning, control engineering, modelling and simulation etc.).

Further information can be found on Campus.

Supervising employee: Esther Blumendeller

The students acquire the basic technical understanding for the planning of a wind farm. They acquire the necessary knowledge about regulatory, economic and ecological issues in connection with the construction and operation of wind farms.

Further information can be found on Campus.

Supervising employee: Ricardo Faerron-Guzman

The students have an understanding of the system of an entire wind turbine. They can determine numerical and experimental loads on wind turbines. They can use load calculations to design the most important components and the overall system. The students are able to apply simulation programs using the example of a typical multi-MW wind turbine.

Supervising employee: Wei Yu

In the wind energy project, students work on a task in a team over a semester together. This includes independent project management and independent processing of the work packages. The current focus of the wind energy project is "Airborne Wind Energy".

Further information can be found on Campus.

Supervising employee: Tim Hagemann

The students learn the direct connection between theoretical basics, metrological quantities, evaluation and analysis by means of practical experiments.
They have basic knowledge of strain gages, current, voltage, acceleration and sound.
They can experimentally determine loads (forces and moments), electrical properties and sound propagation on wind turbines.

Sustainable energy and transport systems provides an overview of relevant renewable energy technologies and new mobility concepts. Topics such as aviation and road traffic are dealt with. The event begins with a lecture series and ends with a group work with elaboration in text form, as well as presentation.

Weitere Informationen finden Sie auf der Campus.

Supervising employee: Frank Lemmer

During this lecture students have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the wind turbine control system. The dominant dynamics of the Widnenergieanlagen are presented. The processes for the development of standard controllers including filters and extended control loops are taught and their application is consolidated in exercises. After completion of the course, the students have built up the essential competences to work on current research questions in the field of control of wind turbines and wind parks.

The lecture "Introduction to Renewable Energies" is an interdisciplinary lecture of different institutes. Within the framework of this lecture, knowledge in the fields of solar thermal energy, photovoltaics, hydropower, biomass and wind energy is imparted. The lectures on wind energy are taken over by the SWE. Overall, the lecture gives an initial overview of the various forms of renewable energy and their basic effects.

Recognition of externally performed audit examinations

For questions concerning the recognition of externally performed examinations in the specialisations D and F, there is a weekly consultation hour at Pfaffenwaldring 31, Room 5.529.

Questions on the following topics can be clarified:

  • Preliminary check of eligibility
    • Preliminary clarification of the thematic allocation to the areas of specialisation D and F
    • Assignment as equivalent module
    • ERASMUS: Learning Agreement
  • Crediting of the audit work performed
    • Submission of documents for recognition (certificates, module descriptions, forms, etc.)

If a preliminary clarification has already been carried out, please fill in the form and submit it for crediting of modules and/or module performances of the examination office. Please enter your information in the form header and leave the lower part of the document empty. Furthermore, a separate form must be filled in for each specialisation.

The office hours take place every Wednesday from 9:00-12:00 o'clock.
