In wind power applications ABB combines its expertise in conventional synchronous generators and new permanent magnet technology.
Permanent magnet generators have been developed for direct drive, medium speed and high speed applications.
The electrical performance of individual generators is optimized in co-operation with the wind turbine manufacturer.
ABB offers three different concepts of permanent magnet technology:
- Low speed, a robust gearless system
- Medium speed, a compact and economical unit
- High speed, a small power pack
Wind turbine generators are also available according to conventional synchronous generators technology.
ABB’s standard spare parts service guarantees rapid delivery to users of wind turbine generators. There is a possibility to order standard spare parts via Parts On Line
