Title: Development of learning modules for wind and hydropower

Abstract: In this report the master thesis project Development of education modules for wind and hydropower is described, requested from the company IETV Elektroteknik AB. IETV offers control equipment for hydropower plants. The origin of this project is inquiries from customers who want to get knowledge and a deeper understanding regarding operation and troubleshooting of the plant. Due to this an education package has been developed. The educations are divided into four different parts; A, B.1, B.2 and C. Part A is an education for land owners and decision makers, concerning the basics of wind and hydropower. Included are basic technique, environmental aspects and economics. Part B.1 teaches how to operate IETVs system in an appropriate way. This includes programming, purpose and function of all the components in a control system delivered by IETV. Part B.2 describes possible faults that can appear in the system, including troubleshooting. Both B.1 and B.2 contains theory and practical examples. Part C is a deeper technical education containing the units and its drives in a hydropower plant. The education was evaluated during a final presentation for employees at IETV, who approved to the material and found it useful. The future work for this education includes an information update as the different techniques develop.
