UPS systems and resistors manufactured by Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS ensure the efficient wind energy generation on- and offshore.
In the field of wind energy Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS provides reliable power solutions both onshore and offshore. Key products in this sector are (all-weather) UPS systems, single-phase or three-phases, DC power supplies, battery systems and chargers, filters, brake and load resistors and neutral grounding resistors.
Features / Use of Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS resistors and UPS systems on wind energy farms:
• System control / emergency stop
• Protection of the inverter against grid wipers by energy absorption
• Securing the supply of cooling water pumps for inverter
• Harmonic filtering at the inverter output
• Securing the obstruction light
• Securing the emergency
• Rotor blade control
• Speed control of the generators in case of gusty winds (systems without inverter)
• Securing the emergency operation of lifts etc.
JOVYATLAS' resistor systems are meeting the high requirements of the wind energy area. We are using diverse resistor elements like our HWS, SPR or MPR-grid systems in standard or special cabinets to design complete resistor systems. Stainless steel versions up to V4A are available on request. Approvals by DNV GL, LRoS, BV, RINA or Gost are possible.
Neutral grounding resistors both on nearshore transformer stations as well as on offshore platforms (where multiple AC transformers are installed) are of utmost importance. If a short circuit occurs, it is necessary to limit the short circuit current to a maximum value before trigger corresponding circuit breakers. For this application, JOVYATLAS produces starpoint earthing resistors in different designs and styles. Basic elements for these resistors are stainless steel mesh elements of type HWS and SPR. Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS produces neutral - grounding resistors for a current up to 10 kA for 1 second and a withstand voltage up to 70 kV.
Braking resistors made by Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS are used in wind turbines without inverters for speed control of generators e.g. in gusty winds. For wind turbines with inverters braking resistors are used to accommodate the excess energy in case of power wipers to absorb the energy of the inverter (acc. E.ON Directive 2003).
To ensure high quality of the electricity filter resistors made by Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS are used in wind turbines. They filter the output voltage of the built-in wind turbine inverter and dampen occurring distortions at the inverter output. Wärtsilä JOVYATLAS is recognized throughout the world for the outstanding reliability and high quality of the filter resistors.
Our products especially for use in wind turbines on- or offshore are custom designed. By using high quality materials and high production standards, we are able to meet the special requirements of the wind energy sector and the requirements of various classification societies such as Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyds Register of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping, Bureau Veritas and RINA.
Numerous companies in wind energy industry onshore and offshore trust our products. The listing of all our references would be beyond the scope. Please contact us - we are happy to provide more detailed information about sizes and uses.
