Training Course Overview

Developing countries have added more clean power capacity than fossil fuel generation for the first time ever, charging ahead of wealthier nations in the global green energy push, Renewable energies are those generated from sources that do not have a finite end, or those that can be recycled, typically from natural sources - like solar power, wind power and water power.

Distributed energy resources increases the efficiency of electrical power generations, transmission and distribution it also lower carbon footprint for a greener world. It includes the ‘green generation’ of electricity by means of PV solar systems, wind power technology, geothermal technology, hydro power, ocean waves and biomass which includes the production of ethanol.

In addition the introduction and merits of the smart grids are also discussed in the seminar. A smart grid also facilitates switch from conventional energy to renewable energy. In case of having a source of renewable energy in the facility, the grid allows an easy access to integrate it into the grid. Smart grid permits greater penetration of highly variable renewable sources of energy, such as wind power and solar energy.

This Electrical Engineering training seminar on Renewable Energy including Ethanol Production will highlight:

  • the various types, components and operation of renewable energy
