Wind Turbine Generator Operation and Components

Through this course, users will learn a variety of skills, including operating states of a wind turbine generator control unit and wind turbine generator safety rules. Users can also expect to learn about the correct operation of components such as a power distribution panel, pad mounted transformer, shunt trip breaker, and more.

Wind Turbine Generator Control eLearning Features Engaging Multimedia

Amatrol’s extensive, thorough multimedia covers green energy basics such as wind turbine generator control. Interactive screens paired with instructive graphics teach an array of wind turbine generator control topics from power generation to system operation. With the optional hardware, learners can then apply this theoretical knowledge to immediate hands-on skills. For example, learners study system data collection and then manually configure data-charting software and view generator control parameters for practice. This combination of theory and practice ingrains concepts in a learner’s mind and makes more advanced topics easier to comprehend. (References 950-TGC1)

Green Technologies | eLearning Courses

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.
