Lake Region State College

WNDT 110 Wind Turbine Safety

Study of the skills required to safety access

and preform wind technician duties within

a wind turbine generator. Topics includes

practical training in fall protection, ladder

and nacelle rescue. Provides an introduction

to the OSHA Power Generation Standard,

National Fire Protection Association 70E

with an emphasis on lock out tag out skills,

hazardous energy control techniques and

a general understanding of how a culture

of safety affects activities within wind site

operations. (3 cr)

WNDT 150 Hydraulic Fundamentals

In-

troduction to basic principles of fluid power.

Subjects include theory, generation, storage

and use of hydraulic energy. Includes study

of flow rates, velocity, pressure, hydraulic

components and circuit design. (2 cr)

WNDT 200 Electricity II

Continued study of alternating current from

WNDT 100. Emphasizes three phase power,

alternating current motors and genera-

tors and resistive inductive and resistive

capacitive circuits. Includes study of power

generation transmission and distribution

methods. (5 cr)

WNDT 201 Wind Operations: Trouble-

shooting and Maintenance

A detailed study and application of the

duties required to complete a yearly or semi-

annual maintenance procedures for a wind

turbine generator. Students will spend con-

siderable time within a wind turbine genera-

tor and carry out the required maintenance

activity for that turbine. Introduces students

to wind turbine generator schematic read-

ing and required record keeping of turbine

maintenance activities. (2 cr)

WNDT 205 Motors and Generator

Control

Continuation of alternating current concepts.

Provides a practical understanding of motor

control wiring including interlocked circuits

and motor starters. Includes a study of

alternating current motors both single phase

and three phase and generators and a study

of doubly fed induction generators. (2 cr)

WNDT 215 Operations and Mainte-

nance Site Support

A detailed study and application of the

duties required to complete yearly or

semi-annual maintenance procedures for a

wind turbine generator. Students will spend

considerable time within a wind turbine

generator and carry out the required main-

tenance activity for that turbine. Introduces

students to procedure writing, transformer

switching and grounding, balance of plant

underground feeder systems, rigging and

underground power line locating methods.

(2 cr)

WNDT 220 Inventory

Provides students with an understand-

ing of wind site inventory control concepts

and practices including theories and best

practices of purchasing, receiving, shipping,

storage and picking. (2 cr)

WNDT 230 Advanced Troubleshooting

This course provides students an oppor-

tunity to continue to develop greater wind

turbine system and component understand-

ing. Much of the course will be spent in the

actual environment of a turbine. Course

includes training on pad mount transformer

switching and related high voltage safety

gear. (3 cr)
