Welcome to the course in Fundamentals of Green Energy production.
Renewable Energy in particular Wind and Solar has become a mainstay in meeting energy needs having achieved grid parity in term of costs as well as technical requirement. The wind energy has proved a highly successful energy option with the installation of over 560 GW worldwide by the end of December 2018. It is estimated that viable wind power potential across globe is 72 TW, which is four times more than the current World’s total energy demand. The major wind generator installation is in USA, some of the European countries and Asian countries like China and India and other countries catching up with the rest. Lack of skilled human resource has been one of the main barriers that hinders wind and other renewable energy integration.
Decades of concerted efforts have started to yield gratifying results and today, Wind power contributes 10.6% (35625.97 MW) of the total Indian energy mix of 356100.19 MW and stands fourth in terms of installed wind power capacity worldwide as on March 2019. With this vast experience, we have an obligation to disseminate the knowledge learnt to foster growth of wind energy across globe.
About this course:
Wind power is the use of airflow through wind turbines to provide the mechanical power to turn the electric generators. This course includes designing wind farms or their components. It refers to all aspect of the designing process, including specific site specification. It also involves planning, manufacturing all hardware and electrical components. It teaches you about the type of turbines to be used. It describes the method of grid integration of wind power plants into the main electrical grid system.
This course is a combination of videos as online lectures, assignment and a discussion forum for queries.
- The prime objective is to transfer knowledge and special skills to the international participants.
- To build skilled human resource so that there will be advancement of wind energy in the participating country.
- To provide an invaluable platform for exchange of professional and cultural experiences among diverse participants.
- To leverage the research that continues to shape this rapidly evolving discipline.
