Custom-made quality

In harsh conditions they need to be highly efficient, economical and reliable

Benefit from a generator customized to your individual system type and get to know the wide variety of products on offer; ranging from synchronous generators in permanent magnet technology to electrically excited, asynchronous short-circuit generators, all the way to the double-fed asynchronous generators, which are very widespread in the wind power sector.

Perfectly adapted to respective wind turbine concept

Maximum energy yield combined with highest system availability: For wind turbines with gearboxes, our specialized generator systems up to 10 MW offer the perfect combination of performance and quality. The generators are available for onshore and offshore applications and can be perfectly adapted to the respective wind  turbine concept and the local conditions of use within a power range from 250 kW to 10 MW. 

 

The SINAMICS W180 wind converters are the suitable system partners for our wind generators.

Maximum cost-effectiveness, efficiency and reliability even under the harshest conditions: For this we have developed the gearless DD wind generator, a high-pole synchronous machine using permanent magnet technology. Based on its modular platform concept, the generator is not manufactured in a complete unit, but is configured from pre-assembled partial segments. This offers advantages in terms of transport and configuration and allows customization to the respective performance requirements, where the segments are optimally integrated into the drive train of the wind turbine using finite element calculations. This ensures optimum efficiency at minimum costs.

  • Simpler transport and easier assembly even with very high power ratings
  • Magnetic forces do not influence the final assembly or transport of the generator pairs
  • Series production thanks to platform concept with standardized components
  • Flexible concept for different turbine solutions, with either internal or external rotor
  • Space- and weight-saving, mechanically highly integrated solution
  • Optimum efficiency through omission of gearbox and own bearing for the generator
  • Maximum reliability with minimum maintenance costs
  • Suitable for onshore and offshore use
