Abstract
From the publisher: "Practical and easy to understand, Maintenance Fundamentals for Wind Technicians provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of wind energy that is appropriate for any electrical or mechanical technician. Through topics such as developing a preventative maintenance program, determining the performance of a wind turbine system, and monitoring improvement through system data analysis, this book teaches readers the skills needed to be a successful wind energy technician. Safety-related practices, such as working at heights, tower rescue practices, and offshore projects, are emphasized to ensure that readers understand the hazards associated with working in the wind industry. Study tools such as hands-on exercises, applications, troubleshooting tips, and learning objectives keyed to AWEA skills will help readers learn everything needed to successfully maintain, service, and troubleshoot turbines on wind farms."
