This course teaches the fundamentals of how wind turbines work, and how systems are designed and installed. The course discusses micro turbines (under 1kW), small turbines (under 100kw), and large turbines (2.5MW range). Residential, community and wind farm scenarios are discussed to the level of working knowledge. The student learns about wind characteristics for system sizing, necessary components to optimize design, and safe construction practices. The course covers the North American Power Grids for grid-tie connections and off-grid battery backup system connections. The National Electric Code (NEC) and safety practices are discussed in this course. Practical applications, operations, and safety aspects are also covered in this course.
In this course students will learn how our future energy demands can be enhanced with wind energy applications. During the course every component of a wind power system will be introduced and explained: tower, blades, nacelle, synchronous and asynchr
Modality: PWR275 is available in the webcast and blended modality formats with extensive content and activity interaction online in the eLearning Portal (www.aptconline.com)
