INRE 30010 - Turbine Technology

0.67 CR
In this module, students will explore the ever-increasing list of terms found in the wind industry. Students will also study the variety of turbine configurations available today. Some of these configurations are tried and true such as the familiar farm windmill while other more experimental designs may look more at home in a kitchen drawer alongside a hand mixer.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Select proper wind energy system components based on their characteristics.
  2. Understand the process of converting wind to mechanical energy and then to electrical energy.
  3. Define the benefits of dc current and ac current in different situations.
  4. Examine different wind systems and components and when one may have an advantage over another.
