Green Line Power Converters for Wind Turbines in Sunny California (USA)


Having presented itself to the European market in spring 2011 at the EWEA in Brussels, and to the German public at Hannover Messe, PCS did not want to pass by the USA, with its well-developed WINDPOWER conference and exhibition.

WINDPOWER, this year in Anaheim, CA, 22 – 25/ 5/ 2011 is one of the largest windpower conference and exhibition events in the world and is staged by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). For the second year running PCS will be holding an exhibit booth there – in Hall C, Booth 4728.

For the 2011 show we will be at the „Gadore Center USA“ pavilion, which is run by a team focusing on market entry, market research and specialist consulting for the American windpower market.

The hot topics PCS expects at the trade show are not only discussions on political promotion in the USA but also development trends in wind turbine technology and the debate on grid integration and stability. The large size of the USA, its currently poorly developed power grid and the resulting difficulty in regulating grid quality, in particular, are leading to tighter grid codes. Visitors to WINDPOWER will be able to hold a detailed discussion with the sales and development team at our booth about current converter requirements. After all, our PCS Green Line power converters provide the required level of grid compatibility, either as an integrated function of our all-in-one converters or as an addon in the shape of our Green Line 1000. This special converter keeps the unit online during short breaks in the grid voltage and can be added to an existing wind turbine with no trouble at all.
