"Unfolding potential - shaping the future": That is the motto of this year's Sustainability Week. The IWES is, of course, taking part. With a lecture on the "Optimum Rotor Theory" and a poster presentation on the "MicroWind" project at the Energy Research Day.

From May 08-12, 2023, LUH's Sustainability Week will take place, organised by LUH's Green Office in cooperation with MHH's Green Circle. Wind energy stands for sustainable energy production. That is why IWES will not miss the opportunity to be part of it. On Tuesday, May 09, those interested can be inspired by the teaching activities of IWES.

First, Claudio Balzani will provide insights into the module "Wind Energy Technology I" in a lecture entitled "Wind Energy Technology: Optimum Rotor Design". There, listeners will learn what the rotor blade of a wind turbine must look like under optimal conditions to ensure maximum energy yield. The lecture will take place from 2:00-3:30 pm in room 010 (3408), also known as MZ2, in the high-rise building on Appelstr. 9A. All interested persons are cordially invited. The lecture will be held in English. Further information can be found here: Lecture Optimum Rotor Theory

IWES will also be present at the Energy Research Day. There, Felix Prigge will present the current status of the MicroWind project in a poster presentation. In this project, IWES is developing a mobile demonstrator of a modern wind turbine. The demonstrator consists of a miniature wind tunnel with a miniature wind turbine that has, among other things, a blade pitch mechanism. In future, the demonstrator will be used as part of an innovative and experimental course in which students can experience the previously theoretical content in practice. The demonstrator will also be available for public relations activities. The MicroWind demonstrator will be put into operation no later than the Night of Science.
