Introduction to Onshore Wind Technology Saturday February 13, 2020 10:00 AM EST
The Canadian Lebanese Academic Forum in association with the IEEE Notre Dame University (Lebanon) Student Branch presents a webinar: Introduction to Onshore Wind Technology:
Wind energy is one of the fastest growing sources of new electricity generation in the world today. These growth trends are linked to the benefits associated with wind energy including green power, sustainability, affordability and economic development. At the end of 2019, 60 GW of new wind capacity was added worldwide, bringing the cumulative installed capacity to 651 GW. Although three-bladed, upwind turbines emerged as the dominant configuration in the late 1980s, this design has since undergone numerous design improvements that have contributed toward greater reliability, increased energy generation and lower LCOE. In addition to scaling, wind turbine design has become more tailored to the specific market conditions where this technology is deployed. What does the present and future of wind turbine technology look like? What are the design trends, current challenges and technological innovation in today's wind industry? This webinar hosted by CLAF Associate Member Wind Turbine Engineer at DNV GL, Mr Adam Chehouri, will provide answers to these key questions.
