Learn more about Wind Energy Training Systems

Here we will cover wind energy training systems, different didactic tools, and lab equipment for teaching students about wind power technology.

We will go through best practices of teaching wind energy, types of wind energy training systems, benefits of hands-on training and how to buy wind energy training systems.

 

What is a Wind Energy Training System?

A wind energy training system is a didactic tool, used as instructional technology in classrooms and training centers to teach learners about different types of wind energy technologies.

These systems normally include hardware, such as miniature wind generators to replicate real world wind turbines, as well as electrical equipment, sensors, monitoring software and educational content such as curriculum, students’ manuals, worksheets etc.

Wind energy training systems are mostly used in technical high schools, vocational training centers, community colleges, TVET colleges, polytechnics, universities, and corporate training centers.

 

Why teach Wind Energy Technology?

It is clear that non-renewable energy sources such as oil, gas and coal have a deteriorating impact on our earth in form of air pollution and increased CO2 in the atmosphere which changes our climate.

Wind power is a non-polluting and renewable source of energy with great potential, which is why it is one of the fastest growing energy technologies.

Wind already creates more than 100,000 jobs in the USA and being a wind turbine technician is one of the fastest growing American jobs. Wind energy is expected to support 600,000 jobs in USA by 2050.

Why use Wind Energy Training Systems?

Hands-on / applied / kinesthetic learning is proven to have many benefits over teaching learners in a more theoretical manner where the common study materials are lectures, books and information sources. In fact, this has been acknowledged for a long time already:

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

– Benjamin Franklin / Confucius

 

There are various widely recognized benefits of hands-on training, namely:

  • Content retainment: course materials are proven to stick much longer when what is learn has also been applied to practical problem solving.
  • Increased engagement: students who learn in a practical environment pay better attention, are more engaged and willing to learn.
  • Critical thinking: since students need to solve problems and trouble shoot physical systems, they will have to understand the intricate workings, as well as make decisions about what to do next.
  • Real world experience: getting mentored and taught by a professional who has experience of working within a specific industry gives the students real world experience and prepares them for the work environment.
  • Workplace safety: most workplace accidents stems from improper use of machines and equipment, which is why its very important to teach students to safely handle technology before entering the workforce.

 

 

How to buy a Wind Energy Training System

There are various things to consider when equipping your training center. Initially you should have done some type of training needs analysis answering questions such as:

  • Which types of jobs will be in demand and have we prioritized them accordingly?
  • Which types of tasks needs to be performed at each job?
  • What do learners need to learn to perform the necessary tasks?
  • What are the standard levels of knowledge required?
  • How do we translate these findings into curriculum and instructional technology?

We have written up a longer blog post about how to search and evaluate technical training systems, which can be useful if you are now looking to equip your training center.

Also, Edquip is an excellent tool for educators and administrators to save both time and money:

  • Browse categories to find the types of training systems you are looking for
  • Narrow down your search with search filters
  • Read reviews and information about each product you are interested in
  • Compare important underlying parameters of the products on the comparison page
  • Request quotations straight from the producers of the equipment
  • Edquip never shares your contact information without your approval

We also produced a quick one minute video about how to use Edquip.
