In full converter ( FC ) concept, using standard high speed drivetrain with PM generators, enables the smallest generator size and a very high generator efficiency at all speeds.
Unlike DF, in FC concept all the generated power goes through a full size converter. It offers full variable speed operation and advanced grid code compliance also in the future, fully separating the mechanical drivetrain from the grid disturbances.
ABB has delivered several types of HS PMG (high speed permanent magnet generator) designs to leading turbine manufacturers since 2003.
- Full speed range
- Advanced grid compliance
- Separates drive train from grid disturbances.
