The Switch has announced that its 8.6MW permanent magnet generator (PMG) for offshore use successfully passed initial no-load testing.
 
The drive train component is scheduled to undergo complete full-load tests in the upcoming weeks. The Switch full-power liquid-cooled converters are modular, compact, efficient and redundant. This extends the system’s lifetime in the rugged coastal conditions and significantly lowers maintenance requirements. The company’s PMG design eliminates fail-prone components. Optimised magnet material use lowers investment costs. Medium-speed drive trains reduce the weight, and help lower the costs. They also require only 10% of the magnets needed for a direct-drive generator of the same power rating.
