0.33 CR
The most efficient, cost-effective wind turbine system available can still be a poor choice if installed in the wrong application. Is the system for intermittent use, high power demand, a marine application, or to simply maintain a battery charge. This module will outline the proper application of well-engineered wind systems for the appropriate uses.  

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Understand the safety requirements both in the design and application of a wind system.
  2. Install wind energy systems in accordance with local and national codes.
  3. Calculate system and component size based on environmental conditions.
  4. Demonstrate the proper use and operation of a wind energy system.
  5. Demonstrate the proper care and maintenance of the wind energy system components.
