From railways to wind power plants
22 April 2009
Bombardier, best known for its railway technology, has not previously been associated with wind energy. But this all changed when Bombardier Transportation subsidiary PCS presented its PCS Green Line power converter family for wind power plants at Hannover last week.
According to the manufacturer, the PCS power converter hasn't just proved its worth for rail technology, but is also increasingly fulfilling high industrial demands. It was therefore a logical step to develop products for the booming field of wind energy in order to provide an efficient contribution to the reliable conversion to electrical energy of power generated by wind plants. The PCS power converter can be used both for onshore plants and in difficult conditions at sea for offshore plants. As well as wind power plants with a double-fed asynchronous generator, it is also possible, according to the manufacturer, to equip plants with synchronous generators with the PCS Green Line power converter family. The performance classes here range from 1.0 MW to 3.5 MW.
