Advances in Wind Powered Generation Technology
This course was specifically designed to introduce the basic design concepts behind large commercial wind powered electric generation systems. It will review the basic operation, limitations, capacities and design of the following solar generating systems: Wind power resource classifications, the Northeastern US (offshore) wind resource map and wind power classifications, new drivetrain technology improvements, new carbon-hybrid blades and carbon filter composite blades.  2 PDH

Small Wind Powered Electric Generation Systems
This course was designed to introduce the basic design concepts for small (residential) wind powered electric generation systems. It will review the basic operation, limitations, capacities and design of solar generating systems: review wind power resource classifications; the basic parts of a small wind electric system; hybrid, stand alone, and grid connected systems; and calculation of potential energy output. 2 PDH

Wind Energy Assessment
In this course the student will learn various resource assessment approaches and recommendations for the use of a formal measurement plan, a monitoring strategy, and a quality assurance plan. The course summarizes the most commonly used siting techniques and addresses land leasing and permitting requirements for a measurement tower; the recommended measurement parameters and offers guidelines for incorporating other optional parameters that may benefit your monitoring program; the instrument components of a recommended wind resource monitoring station, including the performance specifications for basic and optional sensors; and data issues related to in-field raw data storage, data retrieval and protection, retrieval frequency, and documentation. 6 PDH

Wind Turbine Technology Overview
In this course the student will learn how wind turbines are designed and used, specifically for utility sized applications. Wind turbine technology is explained for various applications. A review of turbine components is discussed along with electrical implications. The conditions for optimum turbine performance are presented.  - 1 PDH


How Wind Turbines Work

Wind is a form of solar energy. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth. Wind flow patterns are modified by the earth's terrain, bodies of water, and vegetation. Humans use this wind flow, or motion energy, for many purposes: sailing, flying a kite, and even generating electricity.
