American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) Launches PowerModule PM3000W Converter for Wind Power

American Superconductor Corporation announced the launch of its new PowerModule PM3000W Converter for wind turbines at the HUSUM WindEnergy 2008 industry conference. The new conductor is a breakthrough because it is easily customizable, and can be used in wind turbines with a wide range of generating capacity, from 750 KW to 6 MW. The company advised that it has already received orders for more than 3,300 PM3000W converters from customers, including prominent wind companies from across the globe.

Timothy Poor, AMSC´s Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development, made the following statement on behalf of the company:

“Our PM3000W converter was developed utilizing AMSC’s unique combination of world-class wind turbine design and engineering expertise, wind turbine power electronics and wind farm-to-power grid interconnection solutions. The PM3000W is the world’s first power converter building block developed specifically for bridging the needs of both wind turbine generators and grid connection. This unique converter is a fully programmable, flexible and modular power converter platform that provides universal generator connectivity, and can be utilized within virtually any megawatt-class wind turbine. This revolutionary solution has also been designed to withstand the severe changes in climate and poor power grid conditions that are often encountered at remote wind farms.”
