Frequency converters for grid interconnection
Connecting industrial, utility and rail applications to the electrical supply with differing voltage and frequency is a complex task. ABB frequency converters are commonly used to interconnect 50 Hz, 60 Hz, 25 Hz and 16.7 Hz systems.
ABB manufactures a range of frequency converters with features to match the most demanding requirements with flexible converter based technology allowing seamless connection. The innovative design maximizes power availability and delivers continuous clean power.
The converters for grid interconnection demonstrate highly reliable performance and cost-effective operation. ABB’s grid interties offer efficient power system packages that are specifically designed to interconnect normally incompatible networks.
Applications for grid interconnections:
- Railway networks
- Industry and utility networks
- For various frequencies (60, 50, 25 and 16.7 Hz)Iincluding load balancing
