Nacelle – Wind turbine Learning system: Campus license


In this training course, you will find out more about how wind power is used to generate electrical energy. The course focuses on the operation, troubleshooting and maintenance of the equipment.

A basic understanding of electrical and hydraulic systems is required before starting the course.

The documentation explains the different parts of a wind turbine and provides useful information for future wind turbine technicians and operators.

Campus licenses
The standard option for institutional use. This type of license is intended for users who wish to use the training course documents at a single location.

You will receive a printed version of the student manual and instructor guide workbooks with a multimedia CD-ROM. The multimedia CD-ROM contains all files in PDF format. It includes exercises, solutions and worksheets, datasheets, electrical schematics and user’s guide.
