Additional information: 
Wind power is one of the fastest growing sectors of the world's electrical power industries. This course offers an unbiased insight into the modern wind turbines's design process, techniques, disciplines and tools. Once the basics of wind turbines' architecture definition have been explained, a focus on the design process of machines, in the context of wind farm operations, will be given.

The trainers will guide the audience through the basics of wind energy conversion and the evolution of the design process behind today's giant wind turbines. The modules will highlight the importance of accurate design loads prediction and effective control, alongside their effect on wind turbines' mechanical design. How design options may affect cost of energy is illustrated and future technology trends are reviewed.

Knowledge and understanding of wind turbine design is becoming more important, every day, when looking at the operational context. The second part of the training will therefore offer an overview of the methods to gauge machine selection and suitability, together with upgrade options like lifetime extension and controller re-fit.

The three-day course offers a significant depth of understanding of the technology background, but does not assume any prior knowledge of wind energy.

Who should attend?

Industry professionals wishing to broaden their knowledge; individuals or companies involved in wind farm or turbine development and operation; and professionals of any discipline entering the industry and seeking specific skills, such as: Project Managers, Developers, Civil and Structural Designers, Turbine Designers and Investors.

We had a very good experience in accessing the valuable training resources that you have provided. The training has provided our engineers an overall outlook to the wind industry, from wind technology, turbine design, certification and lifetime extension, to asset management, future tech trend, etc.”
Mr Jun Wang,

Highly satisfied by the content and organisation of this DNV GL training course. Would recommend it to colleagues.”
Jip van Erp,
  • DEME Group
DNV-GL delivered an excellent one-day workshop for our REMS CDT students focused on wind turbine design using their proprietary software Bladed. This added an exciting practical dimension to our taught programme, being well structured and of relevance to future careers in the offshore wind industry.”
Professor Byron Byrne,
  • REMS CDT (Oxford University)
Very deep technical expertise.”
