Wind Power Science, Engineering and Policy: Certificate
Wind power is a rapidly growing and evolving field that crosses traditional academic disciplines and increasingly requires practitioners who understand the relationships among the various components of wind turbines, the environment, regulations and society. Those aspiring to work and advance in the field must have a basic understanding of wind turbine mechanical and electrical systems, including the integration of variable generation into the electrical grid, the multiple factors (meteorological, ecological, geological, cultural) governing selection of optimum sites to locate wind power projects, the economics and regulatory policies governing wind power, and the complex ways in which society’s understanding and acceptance of renewable energy power generation can impact wind projects.
