07-1100 Clean EnergyTraining System

The 07-1000 Clean Energy Training System provides students with a better understanding of some of the clean energy alternatives that are presently being used around the world.
In the Clean Energy Training system, students learn about today's major forms of clean energy and how technology is used to convert and transmit this energy. They explore solar, wind, hydrogen and biodiesel as an energy source that can be used to help reduce dependence on exhaustible, non-renewable fuel sources. They gain a global perspective when they understand the economics, efficiency, and low environmental impact of producing energy from non-polluting, renewable sources.

The Clean Energy Training System includes everything required to function as a "turn-key" learning station; lesson plan, student guide, DVD video, training station with fault insertion, energy producing equipment, hydrogen and bio diesel components. The module provides student instruction in teams of two, for up to 35 hours.
The Lesson Plan includes an Instructor's Guide which provides instructions for installing, setting up, and implementing the module. It also includes learning outcomes, testing and evaluation procedures, answer keys, student skills response, inventory list and print CD.

The Student Activity manual guides students through 15 multi-disciplinary activities using the tools, and equipment included with the module package. It also contains optional enrichment and career exploration activities, daily activity response sheets and activity notes.

Computer Monitoring

Progressive Educational systems Green Ed Data Acquisition is computer monitoring system that records the voltages and currents for the wind turbine, battery and inverter. GEM-DA is a versatile, powerful and yet cost effective data logger handling analog, digital and other types of variables with high resolution and speed. It is a high performance and high connectivity equipment and yet easy to configure and operate. An HMI or software makes it easy to view your data.Standard optional senors for wind speed, direction, temperature, humidity are available. Complete with software.
