Issue 5 July/August 2009 - High Power Semiconductors for Medium Voltage Wind Applications
July 3, 2009
With the increased power levels of modern wind turbines, medium voltage generation and power conditioning have become a viable solution for this traditionally low voltage application. The continuous development of Bipolar and BiMOS products enables the medium voltage converter manufacturer to select the power semiconductor based on the application requirements, rather then trying to optimise the converter around a given device or technology. Full story on page 28.
