Trends in Wind Energy Standards
Surge Protective Devices
Prof. L. Satish
In recent years, new material and improved design led to development of larger and higher rating wind turbines. Offshore wind farms have introduced new engineering challenges. Expansion in offshore wind installation led to introducing the concept of winter lighting for the first time in IEC standards in 2018. Changes in Electrical Industry standards are being made to keep up with the fast pace of renewable energy development. The presentation gives an update on recent trends in wind energy business. An overview of the recent updates in IEC standards, Cigre working group on winter lightning, and NEC will be provided.
Who would benefit from attending this webinar:
Individuals interested in Renewable Energy Industry, companies working on lightning protection for offshore wind farms, individuals working on lightning and surge protection for wind farms.
