FusionDrive, a gearbox and generator that create what the developers call the smartest drive train combination available. FusionDrive offers optimal availability by harnessing all the advantages of medium-speed wind power generation technology. Developer, The Switch, says its compact size offers the lowest weight in the market.
FusionDrive is the result of bringing together the wind power technology of Moventas and The Switch. Wind gear manufacturer Moventascombined its latest gear solution with the medium-speed PMG from The Switch.
Annual energy production is dependent on drive train availability and efficiency. FusionDrive is a reliable medium-speed solution. High-speed components that are more prone to failure have been removed from the design, which leads to the highest availability. Permanent magnet generators (PMG) also enable the greatest efficiency curves, making this a winning combination to boost annual energy production.
The unbelievably small size enables manageable transport and assembly along with a shorter drive train. The drive train’s size also simplifies the turbine’s structural design and boasts the lowest nacelle weight. This improves total turbine cost competitiveness in the market.
