Semikron Wind Power Converters by GD Rectifiers

The primary objective for any engineer when dealing with wind turbine developments is to reduce the cost of energy and increase the output power. However, this cannot happen without new emerging technologies.

Semikron’s SEMITRANS 10 MLI is a 3-level NPC module that meets the needs of wind energy converters perfectly. Using 3-level topologies helps cut converter losses by 50 percent, lowering filter costs by some 30 percent. Besides lower converter losses, cable losses or diameters can also be reduced by around 30 percent.
