The renewable energy sources particularly ‘wind energy’ development has shown a remarkable growth in the recent years, that can create pollution less and environment friendly atmosphere. India, over the years, has been a trend-setting nation with regard to wind power utilization. Decades of concentrated efforts have started to yield gratifying results and today, wind power gets listed alongside of thermal, hydro and other sources of energy in the power supply mix. There was a time when it used to get classified under “other sources”. This is by no means a minor achievement. The Indian wind energy programme has been very successful in commercializing wind energy and it is interesting to note that India is the first and the only developing country that stands fifth in the world in terms of installed wind-power capacity. The wind energy market is continuing to grow steadily in India along with the rest of the world to become one of the global manufacturing hubs for COURSE OBJECTIVES The primary objectives of the training programmes are to develop local technical and manpower with handson-training capable of the following in wind mill sector: (i) Operation, maintenance and monitoring of wind mills (both mechanical and electrical) (ii) Support in the fabrication of wind mill components like blade, gear box etc. In addition to the above, the proposed programmes will envisage the development of trained management personnel who would be capable of planning and execution of wind mill projects including the following:   Assessment of wind mill installation sites. Plan the execution phase of wind mill project, covering the engineering and managerial aspects. wind turbine. India has about 16 large wind turbine manufactures with capacity ranging from 225 kW to 2100 kW and several wind turbine manufactures producing capacity ranging from 300 W to 50 kW. The global wind industry is facing a shortage of skilled manpower to meet the demands of its rapid growth. To address this global demand, PSG College of Technology & PSG Polytechnic College in association with Centre for Wind Energy Technology [C-WET] & Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association [IWTMA] are organising Continuing Education Programmes of post graduate diploma and certificate courses in wind mill sector. The training duration offers a unique opportunity to learn about fundamentals of wind turbine technology and address all aspects of wind resource assessment, wind farm development, wind turbine testing, operation and maintenance of wind turbines in a focussed manner.
