Renewable Energy Kits
With the decline in availability of Fossil Fuels and therefore the increase in prices, alternative sources of energy are becoming more popular. Also, the very nature of the energy that can be harnessed makes the renewable energy more desirable, it is after all renewable and not a finite resource.
Wind Turbine Inverter Systems
Our wind turbine Inverter kits utilise the latest in 6 or 12 pulse AFE technology (25kW- 2MW) allowing for unity Power Factors to be maintained. Many wind turbines only generate at a fixed speed relative to the frequency of the grid either 50Hz or 60Hz. This limits the efficiency at lower wind speeds and may not be able to generate at all. With an AFE (Active Front End) the motor generates at any speed up to the full working speed of the rotor. This can either be induction or permanent magnet motor. This increases the generating duty at lower wind speeds and can harvest the power more effectively. The optimum blade rotation speed can be set correctly the generate the most amount of power out of the given wind speed, unlike fixed synchronous systems.
