The further training course on Fundamental Wind Energy Technology for 21 electrotechnology teachers of Ninh Thuan Vocational College (NTVC) and nine partner TVET colleges of the TVET Programme took place from 30 May to 3 June 2022 at NTVC. FESTO Didactic conducted the 40h practice oriented training course jointly with the German-Vietnamese Programme Reform of TVET in Vietnam (TVET Programme).
“New knowledge and technology based on modern equipment in the growing renewable energy industry have motivated all participants in this training course. We also look forward to continuing with the next training to become master trainers in this field” expressed Ms. Duong Thi Hong Nga, training participant and vice dean of Electrical-Electronic Faculty of the College of Technology II, Ho Chi Minh City. All training participants appreciated further the strong dedication of the trainers Mr. Lim Bing Chen from FESTO Singapore and Mr. Pham Ngoc Tung from FESTO Vietnam who provided professional knowledge and skills to the participants. They coached individuals with special attention that all participants could complete the course successfully and qualified for further education.
During the training, participants mastered and operated three major renewable energy systems. They were introduced to the main parts of a training model of a Nacelle such as generator, gearbox, hydraulic systems, security systems and control systems. They applied simulation of a wind turbine with the EMS system, conducted various complex of measurements and learned how to test and charge batteries. Focusing on the Solar/Wind Energy Training Systems, the participants used a small wind turbine with an integrated charge controller to charge a battery and power different loads. Finally, the training participants did hands-on exercises on each training system under the guidance of the trainers but also independently and in smaller teams.
The further training was implemented in the frame of the Development Partnership (DPP) Vocational Training Center for Renewable Energies – Wind and Solar Technology. The DPP is implemented jointly by the cooperation partners Vietnam Industries Building Services JSC, Festo Didactic SE, Schneider Electric Vietnam, Ninh Thuan Vocational College, and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) represented by the Programme Reform of TVET in Vietnam and supported by the develoPPP.de programme of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
