Continous registration

Aerodynamic Power Upgrade (SE-P-17600)

This training will enable the participant, on the background of knowledge of the composite blade structure, aerodynamic and optimization conditions, in collaboration with colleague, to organize and perform installation of Dino tails, Dino Shells and vortex generators. The participant is able to perform the job either on blades on the ground or via PRAT technique on blades that are installed on a wind turbine. The participant is aware of and can under appropriate climatic conditions implement, test and document the entire optimization task.

Upon successful completion, participants will obtain necessary knowledge and skills within:

  • Blade structure and design principles and specific to the current blade types.
  • The result of the blade optimization.
  • Relevant Siemens Gamesa Work Instructions, checklists, etc.
  • Relevant safety data sheets
  • Material knowledge (in the work instructions used materials)
  • Material knowledge (DinoTails ®, DinoShells ® and Vortex Generator).
  • Work-related process and climate conditions influence
  • Surface types and adherence conditions
  • Typical errors (e.g. wrong position and gluing)
  • Using proper safety precautions when using the materials (in the work instructions used materials)
  • Measuring up the actual
  • Using proper gluing technique and process conditions cure times, etc.
  • Control of the work performed
  • Completing documentation of the work performed
  • Registration of the new blade specifications internally in Siemens Gamesa.

This course is for employees who must be able to install aerodynamic components on Siemens Gamesa blades (blades on the ground and on blades installed on a wind turbine). The components, which improve the power curve, are Vortex Generators, DinoShells® and DinoTails®.
