Wind Energy Design and Fundamentals

COURSE NO: R06-004
Wind Energy Design and Fundamentals
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on wind energy and wind turbines, and discusses the operating principles of wind turbines, their key components, technology and performance features, as well as cost economics and various environmental and social aspects.


The rising concerns over climate change, environmental pollution, and energy security resulted in an increased interest in developing renewable energy, with wind energy being at the forefront.


Wind energy refers to the technology that converts the motion of air into mechanical energy, usually for electricity production. The mechanism used to convert air motion into electricity is referred to as a turbine. A turbine is a large structure with several spinning blades connected to a rotor, where an electromagnetic generator generates electricity as wind causes the blades to spin.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and electrical engineers, and energy specialists who are interested in learning more about the fundamentals of wind energy design.
