Critical parameters of a synchronous alternator for a grid code compliant generating set

by , May 24, 2014

Liberalisation of energy market combined with growing energy demand has led to an exponential growth in the number of embedded power plants. Unlike grids made up of large power plants, grids made of many smaller grids tend to be unstable. To minimise the impact of the unstable grids on the consumer, transmission and distribution system operators worldwide are coming up regulations – Grid Codes that… Learn More

Benefits and challenges of a grid coupled wound rotor synchronous generator in a wind turbine application

by , November 13, 2013

There is a need for very large wind turbines in order to meet the increasing demands from renewable energy sources. A directly coupled synchronous generator with a variable transmission is one of the options for very large wind turbines. This wind turbine topology benefits from harmonic free, transformer free, better fault current contribution and greater reliability. However, there are challenges associated with the topology, such… Learn More
