RWTH Aachen - Chair for Wind Power Drives

The Chair for Wind Power Dri­ves at RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity rese­ar­ches in the field of drive sys­tems for wind tur­bi­nes (WT).

The acoustic beha­vior of a WT rep­res­ents a key tech­no­logy for using the ent­ire sur­face poten­tial and increa­sing accep­tance.
Thus, the cause of dis­tur­bing noise com­pon­ents should already be iden­ti­fied during the design pro­cess and their trans­mis­sion redu­ced or even eli­mi­na­ted. 

Researcher (w/m/d)

Work­ing field:

to streng­t­hen our team in the depart­ment Wind Plant and Farm Design with empha­sis on model­ling, simu­la­tion and trans­fer path
  • Con­tri­bu­ting in a rese­arch pro­ject with focus on acoustic model­ling of over­all WT sys­tem and trans­fer path ana­ly­sis.
  • Exten­ding and impro­ving of exis­ting simu­la­tion models.
  • Deve­lo­ping and opti­mi­zing of con­struc­tive mea­su­res to opti­mize acoustic trans­fer paths.
  • Vali­da­ting of the deve­lo­ped solu­ti­ons during field tests.
  • Coope­ra­ting with indus­trial part­ners and inter­na­tio­nal rese­arch insti­tu­tes.

  • Know­ledge of machine acoustics, FE and MKS.
  • Expe­ri­men­tal expe­ri­ence is desi­red.
  • Basic know­ledge of the func­tio­n­a­li­ties of wind tur­bi­nes is requi­red.
