Squirrel-cage induction generator

Generators specifications
Power class up to 10 MW
Cooling Options Direct cooled
Modular air/air cooled
Modular air/water cooled

Compact and rugged.

Our squirrel-cage induction generators are durable, reliable, and easy to maintain. Due to a simple mechanical and electrical design without brushes and slip rings, they are extremely compact and lightweight despite their high performance. The construction and the technical design of the generator therefore have exactly the characteristics that are required in wind power industry. 

The generator is completely decoupled from the grid via the frequency converter and can be controlled over a wide speed range. The usual grid fluctuations cannot influence the operation of the generator and the drive train of the wind turbine. The turbine can be optimally adapted to the current wind conditions, resulting in a positive annual value.

BENEFITS
