Title: Wind Turbine Generator Physics: Gear Boxes and Blades
Alternate Title: The Development and Field Test of a Remote Laboratory and Web-Based Learning Modules for Wind Turbine Technician Training
Url: http://www.windtechtv.org/M5L1.html
Publisher: Highland Community College (Freeport, Ill.)
Description: This module, produced by the Wind Technician TV project from Highland Community College, introduces students to the gear boxes and blades of wind turbines. The module consists of four lessons: gear box solids and liquids, blades- force analysis, gear box heat transfer and gearbox force and stress analysis.
The lessons include audio and animated visuals as well as interactive simulations. Each lesson includes a PDF document with the lesson's text and images. Skill check activities are also included.
