This technological module builds further on the concepts of module 2, taking into account environmental or load mechanisms that induce wear, tear and errors in a dynamic working regime. Extreme events are considered, just as long-term effects such as fatigue, tribology, corrosion, cable errors and impact on the grid side. The relation with the monitoring strategies and solutions is made, both from a design as well as from an O&M perspective.
To conclude this module, the links between these operational insights, testing and validation and lessons for future designs and O&M are made.
Module 3 is only accessible if module 2 has also been followed or if the student can demonstrate that he/she has sufficient foreknowledge (from education or work experience).
