House of technology seminar at the 23.2.2014 in Essen inverter are crucial to the transmission of mechanical energy into electrical energy and also for the net impact of the wind turbine. The losses will be in as low as possible and the reliability is very high. “The seminar inverter for wind turbines” at the 23.2.2014 in Essen provide knowledge about the various concepts of inverter for wind turbines. The properties and differences are made clear. The Director of the seminar is Prof.
Dr.-ing. Axel Mertens of the propulsion systems and power electronics of the Leibnitz Institute University of Hannover. The many concepts for wind turbines, as well as the inverter in a wind turbine requirements derived therefrom are considered. Based on discusses the main inverter concepts and their properties in detail. The repercussions on the overall system are essential to the design decisions and are considered in an own block.
An Outlook on future developments completes the seminar. The seminar addressed to engineers in the field of wind energy and power electronics engineers from other industries who want to learn more about the technology and features of converters for wind turbines. Assumes basic knowledge of electrical engineering and electrical machines/generators. In addition, it is offered plenty of space for the questions from the participants.
