Better Protection for Power Converters

More reliable wind turbine components improve profitability

Power converters are among the most frequently failing components of wind turbines and are thus associated with high costs and long downtimes. A better understanding of the causes of their failure is vital in the race to develop effective protective measures and thus improve the profitability of turbine operation. A project consortium composed of operators and manufacturers of turbines, semiconductors, and converters is working closely together with research and academic partners in the project ReCoWind, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economics Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Within the three year project duration, field data from various sites and turbine types are being analyzed, damage models derived, and... ... More: Official Press Release Fraunhofer IWES
