Without unnecessary information, one can review the principle of wind energy and electricity production with wind turbines, also one studies each one of the elements which form these equipment deeply.

In addition, one reviews exploitation of wind parks and current trends. It is the newest and most complete technical course concerning Wind Energy and Wind Turbines. The course has an excellent graphical material and it is developed in an entertaining and participatory way.
