SpectraQuest (Richmond, VA) has introduced a full featured Wind Turbine Simulator (WTS) for education in wind turbine technology from power generation to operation. The device provides an ideal platform for teaching the fundamental principles of wind energy conversion to electricity, energy storage, control system, instrumentation, operation, and maintenance of a wind turbine. Designed to be used with and without the presence of wind, the system consists of three independently actuated blades with the ability to control the pitch, a nacelle, and a complete control system. The unit is equipped to install several dc generators and the power produced by them can be combined.
