Standalone system of power conversion
Revolutionary standalone power conversion system to maximize the utilization of wind power and increase the useful life of the wind turbines
Lines of specialisation
Currently, there is a great number of old wind generators with fixed speed that nowadays do not allow the maximum utilisation of wind power.
Ingeteam proposed to IK4-Ikerlan to collaborate with the design of a revolutionary standalone power converter with the purpose of increasing the production of annual power, shelf life and the compliance with requirements of the electrical grid of the fixed-speed wind turbines.
During the development of the project, we have implemented together the algorithms that control the speed and power, and have obtained an optimal result in terms of power efficiency and structural charges.
Thanks to this project, Ingeteam has acquired a privileged position in the market of the life extension of the older wind parks.
This breakthrough allows it to develop a business line of great perspectives, thus bringing at the same time, a very significant social value.
