Wind turbine converters

Wind farm owners and turbine manufacturers need to produce power efficiently and achieve the desired return on investment while meeting grid code requirements. Converters play an important role in the wind turbine system, especially for improving system global return on investment. The steady growth of installed wind power together with the upscaling of the single wind turbine power capability has pushed the research and development of power converters toward full-scale power conversion, lowered cost per kW, increased power density and also the need for higher reliability. Amphenol AUXEL offers connection solutions for minimizing global inductance, increasing the reliability of your power conversion system.
