Securing the transmission capacity and interconnectivity of turbines to the grid is a crucial moment during the installation of any new wind farm. This phase often involves up to six months of field tests to ensure that all the elements are working properly. At the heart of this process is the power converter connecting turbines to the grid. The firmware program within the converter controls and ensures the correct electrical behavior and safe operation of the grid, which is why its behavior must be rigorously tested prior to installation. Ingeteam’s firmware development methodology significantly reduces the in-field validation and certification phase.
