Lightning Protection of Wind Turbines

Event type: 

Pittsfield, MA - Lightning Technologies, Inc. (LTI) will present a professional training two-day course to provide design engineers, operators and maintenance personnel with the principles of lightning protection design for wind turbine blades, structures and electronic systems. It will also be useful to those concerned with specifications, codes and standards, including the recently updated draft International Electrotechnical Commission Standard pertaining to lightning protection design and verification testing of wind turbines.

Students will witness demonstrations in LTI’s High Voltage Laboratory, including tests to determine protection effectiveness of blades, and high current tests of typical conductors and fittings. An engineering degree is desirable, but not required. The student should have a working knowledge of wind turbine structures and systems. Admission is by prior registration only. As the number of students is limited, notification by telephone of intent to register is recommended.
