Phase Technologies Introduces Phase Perfect Converter
With the growing interest and demand for “Green Power”
alternatives, small wind systems typically installed at homes, businesses and
farms have increased in number and generating capacity. The introduction of the
Phase Perfect grid-tie wind power converter allows locations that only have a
single-phase utility service to connect a three-phase induction wind generator
to the grid and take advantage of net metering.
Phase Perfect grid-tie wind power converters provide an
efficient, reliable and affordable means of converting the output of three-phase
wind generators to single-phase power. Utilizing a unique patented circuit
design, only about half the generated power must be processed through Phase
Perfect’s double IGBT conversion system, which improves the efficiency of the
converter to 97% typical. This also reduces component cost to help keep the
converter affordable. Phase Perfect converters are bi-directional, allowing the
utility to power the generator and keep it on line during brief periods of low
wind speed. The converter also utilizes electronic power factor correction, so
that the utility grid connection always operates at unity power factor
regardless of the power factor of the generator.
Models up to 80 KVA in capacity are UL listed and
available in outdoor rated enclosures.
