Efficient Switching and Protecting
The shortage of fossil fuel resources means that the generation of electric power from wind is nowadays more necessary than ever before. For more than ten years, Woodward SEG from Kempen on the Lower Rhine has been a constant presence for those in the market for frequency inverters for wind turbine generators (WTG). Experience gained in power distribution and closed loop control engineering over this time has been fed continuously into the development of new products and technologies. State-of-the-art frequency inverters for wind turbine generators must meet the most stringent requirements with regard to switching frequencies and suitability for a wide range of supply grids. An optimised switchgear combination based on Moeller products was therefore developed for the new Concycle Wind frequency inverter generation.
