  1. 1. Reducing costs in the Training ofMaintenance and Operations Personnelin Wind
  2. 2. Costs reduction Costs reduction comes from the use of state of the art simulators specialized for Wind Turbine and for Wind Farms SCADAs and elearning material (tutorials). With these simulators we can teach the behaviour of each subsystem in the Wind Turbine and SCADA, and we can reproduce their evolution under real conditions, such as: Extreme winds WindGusts Failures in the hydraulics systems Failures in the yawing system Failures in the grid High temperatures Overrun of the Drive Train
  3. 3. Sources of Costs reductionCosts reduction can be realized: As a reduction in the overall training time From a comprehensive understanding of the problems that may arise Actual training on the messages and commands of the Wind Turbines ControllerOur simulators can be a value-added tool for training withreal components when used both previously and after
  4. 4. DescriptionA Wind Turbine is a electrical plant in itself.Its Maintenance and Operation require a number of expertises: 1. Mechanical; 2. Aerodynamic; 3. Hydraulic; 4. Electricity; 5. Electronics; 6. Information Technology; 7. Most of the maintenance works must be done up inthe
  5. 5. DescriptionThe functionalities in the Control Center of a Wind Farm implements: 1. The Control of the Wind Turbines in the Farm (the actual production facilities) 2. Taking into account : 1. The maintenance policies for the Wind Turbines and additional equipment (substation, etc) 2. The relationship with the customers and regulatory agencies.Therefore the personal operating these Control Centers must have experience with:1. The structure, working operation and specific requirements for each type of wind turbine in the Farm.2. The additional elements of the Farm: substation, STATCOMs, etc.3. The logistics implied by the maintenance policies.4. The contractual agreements with the customers and regulations in

  11. 11. Target Personnel Our material is targeted to train Maintenance and Operations of Wind Turbines and Wind Farms SCADA systems. Therefore the required technical background are: For the Maintenance of Wind Turbines: Basic Electricity Basic Hydraulics For the Wind Farms SCADA Operations: Operative of Wind Turbines Maintenance
  12. 12. Some characteristics With the Simulator for Wind Turbines the trainees learn: Which are the subsystems inside a Wind Turbine How is the behaviour of each subsystem Effect of each parameter on each subsystem Evolution of internal signals Messages issued by the Controller upon record ofincidences. Troubleshoot a number of common problems (pitchunadjustment, losses in the hydraulic system, problems inthe yawing system, problems with the anemometer, etc)

  14. 14. Some characteristics of our SimulatorsACM SL has developed a framework (LdP) and amethodology specific for this market: Based on Wired Configurations : the components of a givenconfiguration are wired together (as an electric panel). As a result it is possible,while in execution, to cut a connection. I.e. it is possible to cut the wireconnecting the Controllers Pitch command value and the Nacelle Pitch Moversinput to see the reaction of a real cable problem. Clear separation between the Human Machine Interface andthe behavior of each
