Basic Renewable Energy Training System

8010-5

Description

The Basic Renewable Energy Training System provides in-depth coverage of basic renewable energy systems. It provides an introduction to dc power circuits, and covers in detail the principles behind the production of electrical energy from both solar power and wind power. Finally, the training system introduces students to the storage of electrical energy produced from renewable resources into lead-acid batteries for future consumption.

Features & Benefits

  • The training system teaches the principles of electricity generation from renewable energy sources (solar power and wind power), as well as its subsequent storage in lead-acid batteries.
  • The course curriculum of the Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly flexible and allows a multitude of different customized training solutions.
  • The courseware includes student manuals and instructor guides with all the theory required to perform the hands-on experiments.
  • All workstations, modules, and components are very sturdy to ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding environment such as a training laboratory.
  • The modular design approach of the training equipment allows a large variety of courses to be performed using a small number of modules, without unnecessary duplication of equipment.
  • All electrical components can be interconnected without electric shock hazard since all live parts of the connection leads are concealed and insulated.
  • All electrical symbols representing the components used in a laboratory exercise are clearly silk-screened on the front panel of the modules.
  • The training system includes a highly versatile USB peripheral:
    • Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply, Model 8960-2. This module is used as a dc power source and a battery charger/discharger with a large variety of configurable parameters. It is also used to simulate different wind conditions through a large variety of configurable parameters.
  • Firmware upgrades for the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply are available for download free of charge on the Festo Didactic website.
