ESYS 215 Turbine Generation Systems

This course is designed to provide the student with the knowledge and understanding of doubly fed generators, power converters and associated automatic control systems used in a large wind turbine driven generating systems. The course will discuss the construction, operation and maintenance of synchronous and asynchronous three phase alternating current generators. Additional course topics include discussion of the use and operation of the four quadrant frequency converters in the operation of the wind turbine doubly fed generating system and the integrated automatic control and protection systems that they employ. By incorporating lab activities into the course structure, it will provide the student with the didactic learning necessary for employment in this developing area of the energy supply industry. Open only to matriculated Wind Technician certificate program students or by permission of the department chair.
