In any new wind turbine developments, the primary objective is to reduce the cost of energy as well as to increase the output power. But this can’t happen without new technologies. One solution is to increase the voltage up to the 1000VAC (1500VDC) Low-Voltage Directive limit. SEMIKRON’s SEMITRANS 10 MLI is a 3-level NPC module that meets the needs of wind energy converters perfectly. Using 3-level topologies helps cut converter losses by 50 percent, lowering filter costs by some 30 percent. Besides lower converter losses, cable losses or diameters can also be reduced by around 30 percent.
