DSgen-set® – Drive Technology of the Future
The DSgen-set® is an electro-mechanical differential system specially designed for the wind industry. With up to 97% overall efficiency, the DSgen-set® is currently the most efficient drive train technology for wind energy converters and pioneering in terms of grid Quality.
Wind energy converters (WECs) are rapidly becoming more important as electricity generation systems. This gives rise to new standards regarding power quality on the one hand and a trend towards even larger WECs on the other. Given the growing costs of infrastructure, service, and maintenance of the WECs as they steadily increase in size, both the efficiency and availability of the systems are gaining significance here. This and the medium-voltage power electrics required because of the system size favor the use of separately excited medium-voltage synchronous generators directly connected to the grid. To compensate for the disadvantage of fixed speed in grid connected synchronous generators, there is the option of using differential systems – the DSgen-set®.
