A liquid-cooled inverter provides optimal thermal performance in a compact design for applications unsuitable for air cooling. The manufacturer says the liquid-cooled inverters are ideal for sealed-structure applications such as near shore wind turbines or wind turbines installed in corrosive environments, as well as locations that require sustained operation at elevated ambient temperatures.
These liquid-cooled inverters will also be available in utility-scale E-Force solar inverters, ideal for installation in solar power electrical equipment rooms and high ambient temperature solar power applications. Modular utility-scale E-Force inverters regulate and transform dc power generated by wind turbines or photovoltaic systems into utility-grade ac power, which is distributed to the power transmission grid. The inverters offer peak efficiencies when operating at full power and provide less current distortion by using high-frequency switching. The manufacturer says its compact design makes the inverters easier to install and service. Self-diagnostics and remote monitoring capabilities maximize energy generation. NEMA rated enclosures ensure electronics are protected from extreme temperatures and the elements.
