Course Description

Wind energy (or wind power) refers to the process of generating electricity by means of wind, or air flows in spots which are windy most of the time. Modern wind turbines are used to capture this energy and generate electricity. Over the course of a year, modern turbines can generate usable amounts of electricity over 90 percent of the time. This course discusses the promising future of wind power technology. 

Course Objectives

  • Explaining how wind is produced by nature 
  • Listing the components of a typical wind turbine 
  • Describing the process of grid integration 
  • Comparing and contrasting the advantages and disadvantages of wind energy 
  • Discussing the challenges of setting up wind energy 

Who Should Attend?

  • Electric Engineers
  • Project developers
  • Contractors
  • Policymakers
  • Anyone interested in understanding wind energy
