ESYS 210 Protective Systems

In wind turbines, proper grounding and bonding is necessary to ensure the safety of the general public and service personnel as well as ensuring the protection of expensive equipment and structures. In this class, the student will study the industry standard bonding and grounding methods in use. These methods are used to protect against short circuits, lightning, static charges, and induced (stray) voltages. Students will also look at Federal Aviation Administration requirements for anti-collision beacons and the use of the weather stations mounted on commercial scale wind turbines as an active part of the protective systems. Open only to matriculated Wind Technician certificate program students or by permission of the department chair.
