Training Course Overview

Reducing carbon foot print, green energy, global warming and renewable energy are the buzz words of today. Conventional generation, transmission and distribution of electricity has shifted its focus to produce electricity by the extensive use of renewable energy or green energy from solar, wind, hydro, geo thermal and bio mass. These renewable energy integration are now connected to the grid to cope with the ever increasing demand of electricity.

Smart grids and micro grids has surfaced and integrated with the presence of solar and wind turbines. Solar parks comprising of photo voltaic cells and concentrated solar power with parabolas and mirrors are emerging rapidly today to compliment the electrical power industry. Modern electric power systems storage are now possible with state of the art lithium ion batteries. On shore and off shore wind farms are now very visible as the wind turbines are capable of generating huge amount of electricity.
