Benefits at a glance

Motors of literally any type – old or new – can be operated with standard winding insulation without additional stress. Transformer-less connection to local grids on request. 

Dedicated U/f droop control to create an island grid or to co-supply together with other generators. Additionally supply dynamic reactive power for voltage stabilization (STATCOM).

Simultaneous 2Q or 4Q operation and grid VAR compensation with AFE and motor-side inverter. Also for rotating generators.

Cell redundancy with automatic cell bypass for increased availability. Marine classification for ship and offshore applications.
