Diagnose and repair faults in wind turbine generator control systems

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Diagnose and repair faults in wind turbine generator control systems' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria




Gather data


Data logging information and error codes are accessed


Sensory data on fault or problem (auditory, visual, smell, touch) is gathered


Relevant hard copy or online documentation is accessed to support fault finding process


Built-in fault indicators and error codes are, where appropriate, examined and correctly interpreted


Reference to circuit diagrams, specifications, schematics and/or consultation with technical adviser is used to determine circuit/system function and characteristics


Interpret data to establish hypothesis in regards to WTG control system fault


Knowledge of WTG control systems and performance parameters is applied to interpretation of fault data


Faults are verified or localised using correct and appropriate techniques, procedures, tools and test equipment.


Priorities are set for testing / replacement of specific components, wiring, and connections in the WTG


Repair WTG control system fault


Risk analysis of the job is undertaken, and communicated among the work team.


Safety precautions such as circuit isolations, physical barriers, and other protective devices or systems are used, where appropriate, to ensure safety


Tests are conducted to ensure fault has been correctly repaired or isolated


Faulty components that have been removed from service, where possible, are examined and cause of problem is identified


Loose connections or wiring are repaired


Parts likely to be cause of fault are removed and replaced with tested and operational parts


Systems are tested to ensure correct operation


Fault finding processes are effectively escalated and, if required, work with technical adviser is undertaken to repair complex fault


Record WTG control system fault


Faulty components and parts are correctly tagged, identified and stored or shipped as per enterprise requirements


Faults are recorded to standard operating procedures.


Cause of complex fault and process of repair is discussed with the team and other personnel using an appropriate forum.
