Wind Energy SCADA Training

Wind Energy SCADA Training is a 2-day technical introduction to Wind Energy Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)  system consist of software and hardware elements and components that allows local or remote access to Wind Turbines, Wind Farms, Offshore Wind Farms and Energy to monitor, gather, and process real-time data.

The SCADA systems for wind consist of servers, communications systems, sensors, RTUs, PLCs and more. SCADA systems typically collect rotor velocity, azimuth angle, nacelle angle, gear switches, substations, transformers and many other points of analog and digital data, along with wind velocity, generating level and other forms of data.

Client SCADA software makes it possible to display the current state of the wind turbine, distribution network, trend graphs, alarm history and other charts, prepare hourly/daily logs and monthly reports, enter wind turbine control commands, and engage in other operations.

Training Objectives

Upon completion of the offshore wind farm training course, the attendees are able to:

  • Understand the history and background of onshore and offshore wind farms
  • Explain the different types of wind turbines in wind farms
  • Describe the operation of wind farms
  • Describe the role of SCADA and EMS systems
  • Understand the different types of transmission systems in wind farms
  • Explain SCADA control and protections implemented for different parts of wind farms
  • Describe the SCADA functions applied to wind farms
  • Tackle the problems related to unbalance and faults in offshore wind farms
  • Combine the concept of SCADA and wind farms into the microgrids
