  • Electrical System in Wind Turbines
  • Wind Turbine Generators
  • The Aerodynamic aspects of Wind Turbine
  • Control and Protection System in Wind Turbine
  • Wind Resources Assessment & Techniques
  • Design and Layout of Wind farms
  • Site selection for Wind Monitoring Stations
  • Economic Analysis of Wind Power Development
  • Installation and Commissioning of Wind Turbine
  • Operation and Maintenance aspects of Wind Farms
  • Wind Turbine Testing & Measurement Techniques
  • Certification of Wind Turbine
  • Grid Integration of Wind Turbines
  • Forecasting of Wind and Energy Production
  • Overview of Wind Turbine Research & Testing Station facilities
  • Field visit to Large & Small Wind Turbine Testing Facilities
  • Field visit to Wind Monitoring Station
  • Field visit to Wind – Solar Hybrid system
  • Field visit to Sub- station

RE camp created awareness and provided a good foundation on the principles of engineering besides wind energy technology and its operations in the field during all the seasons. The camp was very helpful to the participants and created a valuable forum for dialogue and open exchange of views.

The participants got knowledge about the wind energy technology, wind resource assessment, aerodynamic technology, wind components, wind electrical generator and operations of wind turbine through classroom lectures. They also got added knowledge practically, through field visit of wind monitoring station, wind farm, research and testing facilities of large and small wind turbines and substation. On the last day, the participants have been asked to present a PPT about what they have learned about the aspects of Wind Turbines in the RE Camp. They presented and explained the key takeaways of the RE Camp which was grasped from the classroom lectures, practical classes and Field Visits. Participation certificates were distributed to the participants at the end of the RE camp during the valedictory function.

The structure and organization of the RE camp was highly appreciated by the participants voiced through their feedback. The participants were very much satisfied by the quality of the content they got from the training and expressed thanks to NIWE and MNRE for arranging the free RE camp under this programme.
