Offshore Wind Farm Training By TONEX

The offshore wind farm training course will teach you the technological developments of offshore windfarms, different types of wind turbines implemented for offshore projects, control of offshore wind farms, protection and reliability assessment of offshore wind technologies. You will learn the fundamentals of offshore wind farms as one of the most emerging topics in renewable energy integration technologies. By the end of this training, you will be able to tackle the recent improvements in offshore wind farm technology as well as challenges related to the control, protection and reliability of offshore wind farms.

Our instructors at TONEX will teach 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 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.

The offshore wind farm training course also will teach you the main components of an offshore wind farm including: turbine and blades, substations, wind towers, foundations, transformers, helipads, switchgear, crane, backup generators, marine cables, and control room. This 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.

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.
