GE has introduced a new wind turbine designed to meet the wind conditions in Brazil.
The 1.85-82.5 wind turbine is International Electrotechnical Commission-certified for high wind speed sites or environments. GE's proprietary Advanced Loads Control allows the 82.5-meter rotor to be sited in more aggressive wind regimes, combining drivetrain sensors and capabilities of GE's Mark Vle controller to individually pitch blades and improve load-handling performance, the company explains.
The turbine also includes grid-friendly features that help operators meet stringent grid requirements in 60 Hz regions.
GE currently has 300 wind turbines installed in Brazil.
