E-085 Wind Energy Project Analysis: 2 PDH
Description of the Wind Energy Project Analysis course
The Wind Energy Project Analysis 2 hour PDH online course is a part of the Electrical category courses.
In addition to large scale applications, there are a number of other applications for wind turbines, such as medium scale applications on isolated-grids and off-grid uses for pumping water and providing smaller amounts of electricity for stand-alone battery charging applications.
Wind energy projects are generally more financially viable in “windy” areas. This is due to the fact that the power potential in the wind is related to the cube of the wind speed. However, the power production performance of a practical wind turbine is typically more proportional to the square of the average wind speed. Wind energy project siting is critical to a financially viable venture. Proper wind resource assessment is a standard and important component for most wind energy project developments.
This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of setting wind energy project. Presented details cover issues related to technical and financial implementation and exploitation of wind energy systems. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address wind energy terms, methods of operation and how to set up detailed technical and financial feasibility model.
At the end of the course you will gain the following knowledge and skills:
- Basic theory and wind energy project background
- Details of wind energy application markets
- Calculation of wind speed distribution and energy curves
- Calculation of gross energy production and renewable energy delivered
