Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, whether using wind turbines to produce electricity, windmills for mechanical power, wind pumps to pump water or sewage, or sails to move boats. The most significant use of this energy source is in wind turbines.
These devices make up a renewable system that is not very flexible and cannot be strictly adapted to daily demand conditions, as their operation is established according to the conditions of the environment where they are distributed (wind in the area). However, thanks to the flexibility of operation of the simulation software provided by Edibon, you will be able to experience a multitude of generation situations with which to understand the basic principles of operation of the elements present in this type of power system.
The PSV-WPPP-SOF software has been designed by Edibon to show the user the basic principles of operation of wind power plants, exposing in a didactic way the elements and parameters present in the generation process, as well as the interrelations between these parameters thanks to the mathematical models integrated in the simulator.
The application offers various levels of training that will provide the user with the essential knowledge and skills on the fundamental principles of control, operation and functioning of this type of power plant. Consequently, it will be possible to carry out a previous configuration of the plant’s operating conditions, for subsequent control and management based on these factors.
The software has been designed to emulate a conventional wind turbine, which has a turbine formed by large blades (which acquire the kinetic energy of the wind in the form of mechanical energy), connected by shafts to a gearbox (to control the torque that reaches the generator) and then to a generator that performs the energy conversion.
