3003120 Foundation and Analysis of Thermo-Fluid and Aerodynamics on Offshore Wind Power 3.0 3
Description Offshore wind power is the use of wind farms constructed in bodies of water, usually in the ocean on the continental shelf, to harvest wind energy to generate electricity. Higher wind speeds are available offshore compared to on land, so offshore wind powerˇ¦s electricity generation is higher per amount of capacity installed. In the face of the trend of global greenhouse gas reduction and the realization of the non-nuclear homeland vision, the government has planned a policy goal of renewable energy generation in the proportion of 20% in 2025. In order to achieve this policy goal, the government plans to use solar photovoltaic and offshore wind power as its main force. Among them, offshore wind power was originally planned to reach 3 GW (1 billion watts) in 2025. To assist students to understand the principle and application of thermo-fluid and aerodynamics on offshore wind power, this course is opened for seniors of undergraduate students and graduate students.
