Wind Power Workshop
- I'm writing to let people know about an upcoming wind power workshop
at Solar Energy International (SEI). It's a great chance for people
to learn about the theory behind wind power and get some experience
with a small wind installation.
Solar Energy International is offering an intensive 2-week wind power
workshop with nationally recognized wind power expert Mick Sagrillo.
Students will learn to design and install commercial wind generator
systems. This workshop covers system sizing, site analysis, safety
issues, and hardware specification. Learn about the different
commercially available wind turbines and the advantages and
isadvantages of each. Get hands-on experience working with full-size
wind systems. The workshop also discusses solar/wind hybrids and
utility-tied wind systems.
The second week of the workshop focuses on the installation of a AWP
3.6 wind generator on an 85' tilt up tower, along with an anemometer
to monitor the local wind resource.
SEI professionals have project and training experience in the
Americas, Africa, Micronesia, and the Caribbean. During the past 12
years, SEI staff have delivered services to the Pan American Health
Organizations, Non-Governmental development organizations (NGOs),
foreign, national and state governments, universities, and individuals
seeking the benefits of renewable energy.
SEI is continuing a 15-year history of education in renewable energy
technologies through its Renewable Energy Education program (REEP).
Workshops are offered in a hands-on / how-to style, primarily at our
Colorado training facility. Classroom and laboratory work is
complemented by case studies, field tours, and professional
installations with real equipment in real settings.
