Logic Design Inc. Announces Release of Wind Turbine (WT) CBT
Proprietary 3D wind turbine simulator allows for technical skills development through self study

REDMOND, WA --Logic Design Inc. (LDI), a leading global provider of educational software, today announced the release of its new Wind Turbine (WT) computer-based training (CBT) program to address the growing global need for workers skilled in servicing, diagnosing, repairing and installing wind turbines and related equipment. The CBT program is designed to equip learners with the skills necessary for working confidently in the wind power industry at all levels.

"Wind energy is one of the fast-growing energy sources in the world, and with that growth comes a need for skilled technicians. Building on the successful launch of our Electric Vehicle Technician CBT in 2022, we saw an opportunity to develop a skilled workforce for the wind energy sector in the U.S. and beyond," said Tim Mitchell, President and CEO. "The Wind Turbine CBT is another step our company is taking in supporting the clean energy sector."

This CBT program will meet a growing need for skilled technicians as wind generation is expected to more than double by 2030. According to Global Wind Energy Council's GLOBAL WIND REPORT 2023 (, global installed wind generation capacity has jumped from 8.2 gigawatts (GW) in 2002 to 906 GW in 2023. GWEC Market Intelligence also forecasts 680 GW of new capacity in the next five years (2023-27), representing 136GW growth per year, with predictions that 1221 GW of new global wind capacity will be added by 2023. The Council estimates that over half a million new wind turbine technicians will be needed by 2026 to service this new capacity."

As a leader in asynchronous, on-demand training that the Wind Turbine CBT program is based on, LDI's other award-winning online technical training programs including electric vehicle, robotics and industrial automation. The interactive curriculum includes a proprietary 3D wind turbine simulator that is the first and only of its kind, offering learners the ability to study in a real-world environment without the inherent risks involved in working on wind turbines.

Key Features of the 3D Wind Turbine Simulator:

  • Real-Time Visualization: Users can analyze wind patterns from every angle to understand the complex interactions between wind and turbine.
  • Interactive operation: Modify blade pitch, wind speed, wind direction and other critical parameters to see their effects on turbine efficiency and power output.
  • Pre-Built Lab Projects: Includes pre-built lab projects presented within the 3D Wind Turbine simulation world, providing a rich resource for practical learning and experimentation.
  • Pitch and Yaw Ladder Logic Applications: Illustrates how PLCs are used to provide automatic control of wind turbines.
