A 2.5 MW Inverter (Generator Control Unit) is ready for use in large offshore and onshore wind turbines. The design supports turbines with a capacity of 5 to 6 MW, as well as future designs with capacities over 10 MW. Further, the inverter uses liquid cooling and medium voltage to reduce footprint and cabling costs. The units are available for production and compatible with a wide range of wind turbines. The 2.5 MW inverter uses innovative IGBT-based design and delivers power to the grid from permanent magnet generators. The inverter also has a medium voltage of 5,500 Vdc and 98.5% efficiency at full load. The inverters will be deployed in an offshore European multi-gigawatt wind farm under development.
