Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based Magnetek Inc. has received an initial production order valued at nearly $1.5 million for its newly designed, utility-scale E-FORCE liquid cooled wind inverter. Delivery of the inverters is scheduled to be completed by the end of June.
Based on Magnetek's E-FORCE air cooled inverter technology platform, this high-power, density-liquid-cooled inverter provides optimal thermal performance in a compact design for applications where air cooling is unsuitable, according to the company.
The E-FORCE liquid-cooled inverter is ideal for sealed structure applications such as near shore wind turbines or wind turbines installed in corrosive environments, as well as locations where sustained operation at elevated ambient temperatures is required.
Magnetek's modular utility-scale E-FORCE inverters regulate and transform DC power generated by wind turbines or photovoltaic systems into utility-grade AC power, which is distributed to the power transmission grid.
E-FORCE inverters offer peak efficiencies when operating at full power and provide less current distortion by using revolutionary high-frequency switching technology engineered by Magnetek, according to the company.
