Introduction:

Offshore Wind Farm Training – Hands-on

The offshore wind farm training course will help you to understand the technological developments of offshore wind farms, different types of wind turbines implemented for offshore projects, control of offshore wind farms, protection and reliability assessment of offshore wind technologies.

Offshore wind farm training course teaches you the history of offshore wind farms and real world projects operating based on offshore wind farms nowadays. Moreover, you will be introduced with the recent wind turbine technologies and their architectures, transmission network used for offshore wind farms, reliability and stability issues related to offshore wind farms, reactive power and voltage support, and operation of offshore wind farms during different wind speed operating points. The Offshore Wind Farm Training course will then focus on the main type of wind turbine which is widely used in the power system industry which is the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind turbine.

By taking the offshore wind farm training course, you will understand the main components of an offshore wind farm including: turbine and blades, substations, wind towers, foundations, transformers, helipads, switchgears, crane, backup generators, marine cables, and control room. This Offshore Wind Farm Training course will also help you to understand the basics of induction generators as the main components of wind farms, power electronic based wind turbine generators, protections implemented for different types of faults in offshore wind farms and effect of faults on the wind turbines. The audience in the offshore wind farm training course will also learn about:

• Crowbars in DFIGs
• Back to back converters in DFIGs
• Gear box in offshore wind farms
• Wind turbines
• Modeling of DFIG in abc and dq frames
• Unbalanced operation of offshore wind farms
• Average modeling of wind farms
• Considering the DC side dynamics in offshore wind farms
• Active and reactive power control in offshore wind farms
• Pitch angle control of wind turbines
• Fault ride through capability of offshore wind farms
• HVDC and HVAC transmission systems in offshore wind farms
• VSC-HVDC transmission in offshore wind farms
• Energy storage systems in offshore wind farms
• Smart grids in offshore wind farms
• Phasor measurement units for offshore wind farms

Finally, the offshore wind farm training course will introduce the protection and reliability assessment of offshore wind farm by including the topics such as: Wind turbine protections, Feeder protection, transmission protection, and earth faults in offshore wind farms.
