AMSC has received an approximately US$ 40 million order for wind turbine electrical control systems (ECS) from Inox Wind Limited, part of India's Inox Group of Companies.
AMSC expects to begin shipments under this new order during the second quarter of fiscal 2015 and expects to complete the vast majority of shipments by the end of fiscal year 2015. AMSC's ECS are an integrated, high-performance suite of power electronics systems that include the wind turbine power converter cabinet, internal power supply and various controls. Together, these systems serve as the "brains" of the wind turbine and enable operation by controlling power flows, regulating voltage, monitoring system performance, controlling the pitch of the wind turbine blades and the yaw of the turbines to maximize efficiency.
