PCS Green Line to Present Power Converters at Hanover Fair (Germany)

Visitors to the 2011 Hanover Fair will have a chance to see the expanded centrepiece of the new generation of PCS Green Line power converters: In addition to the extremely compact IGBT power module inside the power cabinet, PCS Power Converter Solutions GmbH from Berlin presents an incoming feeder cabinet with smart DCU control unit at the Hanover Fair, in Hall 27, Booth C14, April 4 through 8, 2011.

Word of the reliability modularity and expandability of PCS Green Line power converters has already gotten around. With its incoming feeder cabinet, the Berlin-based company now showcases the functionally separated setup directly at the fairgrounds. The design in compact modules provides not only a convenient way to expand the performance class, but also a flexible way to mount the modules inside tower and nacelle.

PCS Green Line and PCS Green Line Systems easily satisfy the guidelines for grid feed-in and grid compatibility (the so-called grid codes): By providing reactive power for the grid and through grid-supporting measures, the wind turbine will remain grid-connected even if in case of a voltage drop.

At the moment, PCS Green Line is undergoing extensive field testing while simultaneously submitting to rigorous tests at the in-house lab. First results suggest that the new generation of PCS power converters for wind turbines meet all expectations. The results can be witnessed live at our booth at the 2011 Hanover Fair.

PCS is a dynamic, independent company with vast experience, about 220 expert staff, and a turnover of 50 million Euros. PCS Green Line power converters achieve peak performance for wind turbines – featuring user-friendly design, excellent control technology, test runs, project management, and all-in service.
