Global power conversion technology group Ingeteam launched its next-generation, high-power doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) wind power converters. Ingeteam’s DFIG converter series was designed to be grid-friendly, and include fault ride-through, selective catalytic reduction and small-scale renewable features, enabling them to be deployed anywhere in the world.
The new DFIG converters can be modulated for customized solutions to minimize wind turbine Levelized Cost of Energy, and they’re built for high-power applications in the range of 6 to 8 MW.
“The overall design ensures high-quality performance with regards to reliability, availability and maintainability. They are highly versatile in order to interact with a wide range of grid connection situations, regardless of the particular local grid codes and conditions. The full certification of any new product design is a “must” for the company and, therefore, guarantees the converters can obtain the most demanding certification standards,” the company wrote in a press release.
Ingeteam is trying to meet market demand across all regions and can supply equipment from any of its production facilities. The company currently has manufacturing facilities in Europe, Asia, North and South America, and sales and service centers located all over the world to offer support and service to its clients.
