Woodward SEG GmbH & Co.'s CONCYCLE wind frequency converters have met current grid-code requirements for doubly fed induction generator systems.
In cooperation with VEM Sachsenwerke GmbH, Woodward SEG is currently developing a full-size converter. The company's experience in converter technology will be used to market the product for use in wind energy applications with permanent magnetic synchronous generators coupled with a gearbox.
