While wind turbines can be enormous in size, it’s the smaller components like ABB’s control and protection products that help ensure the availability of electric drive trains, pitch and yaw systems as well as other auxiliary circuits.
From breakers to contactors for the electrical drive train, to switches and surge protection devices for the turbine control system, ABB has a one of the largest portfolios to ensure reliable and safe operation. By choosing ABB products, you can save cost with easy to install products. For example, an ABB motor starter can save up to 45% time compared to traditional systems. ABB’s control and protection products are certified for worldwide applications, so wind turbine or sub-system manufacturers are able to standardize designs resulting in lower costs.
