The generator control system is the heart of a utility-scale wind turbine, converting mechanical rotation of the hub into clean, 3-phase power that synchronizes with the utility grid. To operate and maintain a wind turbine effectively, wind turbine technicians must have the special skills needed to service, operate, and troubleshoot the generator control system, which includes the generator, rectifier, generator control unit, power distribution panel, pad mounted transformer, and generator control software.
Prepare your students for careers in the rapidly growing fields of renewable energy engineering, sustainability and energy efficiency with renewable energy engineering solutions suited to your education program.
With the demand for renewable energy on the rise and a lack of qualified technicians to maintain the new wind turbines, solar production and green technology, Tech-Labs is proud to introduce a new line of Green Energy products. We offer training products help students at schools, universities and research institutions to understand key concepts regarding renewable energy, energy management and energy storage. You will bring students closer to these complex technologies, while achieving the desired learning outcomes in a fun and interesting way.
We offer a variety of solutions that teach basic and advanced principles of harnessing renewable resources like wind, sunlight, biofuels, geothermal heat and water to create a more sustainable world.
The demand for qualified solar and small wind technicians is rising, as more consumers and businesses apply solar energy and small wind systems in their communities. Many employers prefer employment candidates who are certified. Amatrol’s 850 series Alternative Energy Learning System supports the learning necessary to prepare for portions of the solar and small wind certifications offered by such certifying groups as NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners), SWCC (Small Wind Certification Council), and ETA (Electronics Technicians Association).
