DTU Wind Energy invites you to the PhD Summer School: Remote Sensing for Wind Energy

12 – 16 June 2017

Venue: DTU Wind Energy, Risø Campus, Roskilde

This 4.5-day summer school will focus on advances in remote sensing techniques useful in wind energy. The themes to be covered are development, instrument configuration, signal processing, data analysis and applications of various remote sensing instruments: SODAR, LIDAR, ceilometers and SAR among others, both ground- and satellite-based instruments. Applied use includes wind resource mapping, wind profiling, power curve, wind loads, turbulence, and wind turbine control. Theoretical aspects of scattering and atmospheric boundary-layer characteristics relevant in remote sensing for wind energy will also be covered. Practical experiments will demonstrate remote sensing methodologies, and advantages and limitations will be discussed.

Charlotte Hasager (chair), Alfredo Peña, Jakob Mann, Torben Mikkelsen. Secretary: Anette Werner. 

We plan hands-on exercises. Please bring you laptop.

Credits for the course are 2.5 ECTS.
  This includes 34 hours of preparation time studying the Compendium of the PhD Summer School: Remote Sensing for Wind Energy available:

Cost for participants
Free for DTU PhD students (via campusnet registration)
250 euros per PhD. student
2000 euros per non-PhD. student

Deadline for registration:  15 May 2017
