TOP REVIEWS FROM WIND ENERGY
This course grows from simplicity to medium complex ones with more emphasis given to rotor blade, need more focus on wind turbine electricals - power conversion, generator design and tower structure
Great course, doesn't just feed you everything. Do need some engineering maths background to fully understand. Would be excited for a follow-up where they go more in depth in each of these topics.
I have taken about six coursera courses and this one required the highest level of mathematical ability and engineering ability. I feel like I got a good introduction to field of windturbines.
This course really helped to learn and understand more about wind energy and its uses. Great classes and teachers explain really well. No unnecessary topics included and everything is understandable.
