Webseite Chair for Wind Power Drives

The Chair for Wind Power Drives researches the behavior of drive systems in modern multi-megawatt wind turbines. Research goals include increasing the availability, the robustness  alongside energy efficiency of wind turbines as well as lowering the cost of electricity. For this purpose, software development tools and modern system test benches are used in a network.

In the context of a researchproject, tests are to be carried outon an existing test bench at CWDto experimentally investigate anew bearing concept. For thisbpurpose different bearing variants of this type will be tested. In order to make the test time and thematerial usage as efficient aspossible, a modular system for this bearing type will be developed with in the scope of a final thesis. The aim is to be able to test asmany variants as possible with as few parts as possible.


  • Execution of a requirements and variant analysis
  • Comparison of different solutions
  • Methodical design of bearing components
  • Simplified cost estimation


  • Interest in the design of parts and components and the ability to think methodically
  • Experience with CAD programs
  • Motivation to work independently and autonomously
  • Previous knowledge in the field of wind turbines is desirable

We offer:

  • Immediate start and rapid progress of the thesis
  • Intensive supervision
  • Flexible working hours in a young and motivated team
  • Possibility for further employment as part of a doctorate

We look forward to your application by email:
