Renewables for Households: Wind Turbines
Rethinking household energy provision – an in depth look at small scale wind turbines.
Whether you’re thinking of installing wind turbines at home, in your community or for your business, this one day course will give you an in depth understanding of the factors you’ll need to consider. Through a mixture of lectures and hands on sessions, the course will cover wind turbine selection, operation and installation.
This course will give you the ability to decide if a wind turbine is suited to your needs, develop a cost benefit analysis and quantify the potential emissions reductions.
We’ll explore methods of wind data collection and analysis, quantifying the available resource of a site. Then, through a range of lectures and hands on sessions, we’ll look at turbine sizing and selection, positioning, installation and connection. The course will also cover basic wind turbine operational physics, focusing on 12/24/48V DC machines.
A basic knowledge of MS Excel (or equivalent) is desirable for this course.
This course is part of a series exploring renewable energy technologies for households. Each course can be taken as a standalone or as a series where they will equip you with the skills and knowledge to implement different renewable technologies in your home.
Alan is a Charted Energy Engineer and lecturer on our postgraduate courses here at CAT.
