Autonomous power conversion system

14 Jan 2017

Ingecon Wind Fix2var Speed, by Ingeteam, is an autonomous power conversion system that increases the Annual Energy Production (AEP), lifetime, and grid-performance of fixed-speed wind turbines by enabling them to transform to variable-speed machines to best match wind conditions. The Ingecon Wind Fix2var Speed can smooth speed changes, reduce mechanical torque steps caused by wind gusts, and minimize transients due to start-ups, emergency stops, and grid variations. What is more, the system ensures grid compliance by removing flicker effects and low frequency harmonics generated by the capacitor banks, and enabling power factor regulation.
