Turbine Control Troubleshooting Main

A sample copy of the Turbine Nacelle Troubleshooting Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.

Wind Turbine Nacelle Training | Operation & Troubleshooting Skills

Learning System: 950-TNC1

Amatrol’s Turbine Nacelle Troubleshooting Learning System (950-TNC1) teaches learners the unique skills required to operate, adjust, troubleshoot, and maintain wind turbine nacelle systems. The system replicates a fully-functional, utility-scale nacelle, allowing learners to develop and practice component-, subsystem-, and system-level skills.

The Wind Turbine Nacelle training and troubleshooting system also features FaultPro, Amatrol’s exclusive computer-based fault insertion system. FaultPro allows an instructor to electronically insert realistic nacelle problems into the system and then track a learner’s progress in troubleshooting and solving the problems. The wind turbine nacelle troubleshooting system can also be connected to the Turbine Electric Hub Learning System (950-TEH1) and the Turbine Generator Control Learning System (950-TGC1) to create a comprehensive wind turbine learning experience.

Study Wind Turbine Troubleshooting and Practice on Real-World Equipment

Amatrol’s wind turbine nacelle training system teaches learners troubleshooting skills essential for wind turbine technicians. The system features industry-standard components, such as a turbine control unit, hydraulic power system, yaw drive with dual motor drive, twist box, and ultrasonic anemometer. A wind simulator allows learners to operate the system under varying wind speeds and directions, training them to operate the yaw control and turbine safely. The system replicates realistic troubleshooting situations utilizing FaultPro, Amatrol’s exclusive computer-based fault insertion system. Instructors can target training by electronically inserting faults across all key subsystems: electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic.

Add Optional Systems To Create a Comprehensive Wind Turbine Learning Experience

The wind turbine nacelle troubleshooting system can be connected to Amatrol’s Turbine Electric Hub Troubleshooting System (950-TEH1) and Turbine Generator Control Learning System (950-TGC1) to create a realistic operating and troubleshooting wind turbine environment. Fiber optic communications connect the controls of the three systems and control the entire system using the turbine control software, just as they would on a real wind turbine. Learners can even bring the turbine online with the grid.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. The wind turbine nacelle troubleshooting system curriculum teaches learners about troubleshooting utility-scale wind turbine nacelle systems. Specifically, learners will study how to troubleshoot hydraulic power, yaw, and turbine control problems. The combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

Green Technologies | Training Systems

Amatrol’s Green Energy Technology learning systems cover two concepts: Wind Turbine Technology and Solar Technology. This learning program starts with many traditional technical disciplines like electric motor control, wiring, rotation machines, hydraulics, mechanical fabrication, print reading, etc. and moves into more specialized skills in wind turbine and solar thermal concepts and installation.
