South Korean wind turbine manufacturer Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has ordered first 5.5MW electrical control systems (ECS) from the Massachusetts-based AMSC.

The 5.5MW full conversion wind turbine design and prototype is the product of a joint development between South Korea-based
Hyundai and AMSC.

In November 2017, Doosan acquired the 5.5MW prototype, design, and rights to manufacture and sell the turbine. The model, for which AMSC is the exclusive supplier of ECS, will be used on the first phase of the Southwest Offshore Wind Project in South Korea.

“Doosan’s investment in AMSC’s wind turbine design and proprietary ECS aligns with South Korea’s commitment to renewable energy utilizing offshore wind power,” said Daniel P. McGahn, President and CEO, AMSC.

AMSC’s wind turbine ECS includes AMSC’s proprietary PowerModule power converters, pitch and yaw converters, SCADA systems and other power electronics.

According to AMSC, they are designed to enable reliable, high-performance wind turbine operation by controlling power flows, regulating voltage, monitoring system performance and controlling the pitch of wind turbine blades to maximize efficiency.
