The control system provided by Parker includes a main AC890 grid-tie inverter and a smaller AC890 motor drive for the yaw mechanism. Both devices communicate with an operator-friendly touch-screen over Ethernet. All of this is mounted and wired in a control cabinet for ease of installation at the site. In addition to the electronics, Parker is also providing the PMAC generator and a servo motor for the yaw mechanism and pre-configured cable sets.
Parker Hannifin is committed to the development of innovative solutions related to sustainable energy solutions, and the SSD Drives Division has applied and adapted over 30 years of experience in industrial drive technology to this rapidly growing market. With a proven control algorithm and robust IGBT power platform, the AC890 series offers reliability and ease of use with both induction and permanent magnet AC generators, as well as performing as a motor drive. In addition to wind energy recovery, Parker is actively involved with other sustainable technologies including solar power, ocean wave power, hybrid and electric vehicles, and battery energy storage systems.
