Wind Turbine Technology
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief overview of modern wind turbine technology and its associated components, discusses the financial and technical risks involved, and the technological improvements that would be required to increase the credibility of wind energy in the future.
Current turbine technology has enabled wind energy to become a viable power source in today’s energy market. Advancements in turbine technology that aim at reducing capital costs, increasing capacity factors, and mitigating risk to increase wind energy’s presence are currently being explored. With sufficient research, development, and demonstration (RD&D), these new advances could potentially have a significant impact on commercial product lines in the next 10 years.
This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is intended for renewable, sustainability, mechanical, electrical, and industrial engineers, as well as other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of wind turbine technology.
This PE continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Describing the status of wind technology today and the configuration of the modern wind turbine
- Providing a brief history of technology development over the past three decades
- Discussing prospective improvements to utility-scale land-based wind turbines as well as offshore wind technology
- Understanding the financial and technical risks involved in wind technology
- Addressing distributed wind technology and its applications
