COURSE TITLE: How a Wind Turbine Works
COURSE NO: R01-011
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
How a Wind Turbine Works
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of wind turbines and presents the basic features, components, types and operating principles of the most commonly used wind turbines in the industry.

 

Wind is a form of solar energy caused by a combination of three concurrent events: the sun unevenly heating the atmosphere, irregularities of the earth's surface, and the rotation of the earth. The terms "wind energy" and "wind power" both describe the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity.

 

Wind turbines work on a simple principle: instead of using electricity to make wind—like a fan—wind turbines use wind to make electricity. Wind turns the propeller-like blades of a turbine around a rotor, which spins a generator, which creates electricity.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and electrical engineers and energy specialists who are interested in learning more about wind turbines and their basic operating principles.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the process by which wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity
  • Learning about the different components of a wind turbine
  • Understanding the operating principles of a wind turbine
  • Learning about the different types and applications of wind turbines
  • Gaining a general overview of hybrid wind and solar electric systems

COURSE TITLE: Wind Energy Assessment
COURSE NO: M06-002
Wind Energy Assessment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes various resource assessment approaches and recommendations for the use of a formal measurement plan, a monitoring strategy, and a quality assurance plan. It summarizes the most commonly used siting techniques and addresses land leasing and permitting requirements for a measurement tower. It also details the recommended measurement parameters and offers guidelines for incorporating other optional parameters that may benefit your monitoring program.

 

This  course also describes the instrument components of a recommended wind resource monitoring station, including the performance specifications for basic and optional sensors.  Finally, it highlights data issues related to in-field raw data storage, retrieval and protection, retrieval frequency, and documentation.

 

A wind resource assessment program is similar to other technical projects. It requires planning and coordination and is constrained by budget and schedule limitations. It demands a clear set of objectives so the best assessment approach is selected. Its ultimate success rests on the quality of the program's assembled assets including sound siting and measurement techniques, trained staff, quality equipment, and thorough data analysis techniques.

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of wind energy.
