Amatrol’s Green Energy Technology eLearning courses 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.
Wind Turbine Technology
Wind concepts introduces wind energy as an important source of power that is growing dramatically. Wind farms can be found in virtually all areas – from cold, arctic conditions to the tropics. Wind concepts provides learners an understanding of the basics of how we can harness wind energy, either in large utility-scale turbine farms or in small wind applications. Provides an overview of a broad range of basic concepts in wind energy and technology including how wind power systems work and what it takes to generate power with wind technology.
Solar concepts introduces a broad range of basic concepts in solar energy and technology, including photovoltaic and thermal solar systems. Learners explore how to translate location, sun, and technology into practical applications. Covers types of solar energy systems, AC & DC photovoltaic systems, solar industry overview, passive and active water heating, space heating and cooling, solar irradiance, peak sun, global positioning, solar time, sun path, array orientation and insolation data.
