Ingeteam has presented the validation process undergone by its new high power DFIG wind converters. Ingeteam’s converters are tested and labelled to comply with and facilitate the full wind turbine certification process.
Ingeteam’s new high power wind converters have been tested in full-scale bench tests in combination with rated power DFIG generators to validate the whole system performance for hardware and SW software integration, and have passed all the combined tests. Moreover, data from these full-scale tests are then correlated with existing data to obtain detailed system models.
Using a converter cabinet-scale climatic chamber, Ingeteam carries out detailed validation campaigns to provide empirical assessment of all possible climate conditions including the most extreme high-low combinations of temperature and humidity. Condensation tests simulate the worst scenarios to provoke condensation and confirm that there is no risk to the converter even in such extreme cases.
