Ingeteam and Indar, independent suppliers of electrical conversion equipment, will exhibit at AWEA WINDPOWER 2016, to be held this year in New Orleans, United States, May 23-26.
One of the largest wind energy events in North America, AWEA WINDPOWER 2016 expects to host thousands of industry professionals, who will have the opportunity to share their vision about wind power. At stand #3039, Ingeteam is to showcase its latest products and O&M services, including power converters, generators, turbine controllers, Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS), SCADA management systems and the innovative developments about the provision of operation and maintenance services for onshore and offshore wind farms.
Ingeteam offers low and medium voltage power converters up to 10 MW for onshore and offshore applications, optimized for DFIG and FC topologies, full power converters specifically designed for each generator technology (PMG, IG, EESG) and air cooled, air/water cooled and full water cooled solutions for harsh environments. Our converters achieve industry-leading efficiency and reliability and comply with the strictest grid codes. With over 31 GW of installed wind power capacity worldwide, 7% of all wind turbines operate with Ingeteam technology.
Participants will also find INDAR´s wide range of wind generators, manufactured in different topologies (DFIG, DFM and PMG amongst others). Overall Indar wind generators are recognized for their high efficiency and stiffness, having obtained in parallel the recognition of the most demanding energy utilities and the approval on the certification bodies and the standards worldwide (UL amongst others).
INDAR has production plants in Milwaukee (USA), Mexico D.F., Beasain and Segorbe (Spain) and a sales network in over 45 countries. It provides tailor made solutions in the field of energy generation and stands out as a leader in hydroelectric generation, wind power, stationary energy (Combustion Engines), gas and steam (Biomasses, Cogenerations, Geothermal energy, etc.) and submersible motors and pumps, as well as advanced electric propulsion systems for ships and energy generation in plants. The wind power division, which is leader in its sector, delivers generators to the most important manufacturers of wind turbines in the world. Indar Wind has 18 GW of power installed worldwide.
In addition, Aritz Lorea, DFIG Product Manager, will be speaking on “Optimal Fault Ride Through Crowbarless Solution for Doubly Fed Induction Generator Topology” on Tuesday, May 24 (1:00 PM, Room: Tech Station) and will focus on how to improve the DFIG’s Fault Ride Through behavior in order to overcome previous DFIG technical constraints and hence comply with the strictest grid codes.
