The construction of a 250 kW prototype drivetrain with a medium-speed Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (Brushless DFIG) in its heart has been completed and tests have been commenced to assess the performance. The generator is built by ATB Laurence Scott in Norwich, UK and the converter was assembled by Wind Technologies' engineering team. The tests are planned to accomplish in eight weeks and results will be published in October this year.
"We are very excited about the completion of manufacture of the 250 kW prototype system. A comprehensive test schedule has been planned and we are looking forward to obtaining results and assessing its performance.", said Paul Malliband, VP Engineering of Wind Technologies.
