AMSC Signs Contract with ACCIONA Energy for New Wind Turbine Low Voltage Ride Through Solution
-- D-VAR® RT Solution Enables Individual Wind Turbines to Meet Strict Grid Interconnection Code in Spain -- Contract Value Exceeds $10 Million -- New Product Opens Wind Turbine Retrofit Opportunity
According to the Global Wind Energy Council, Spain was the world's third largest wind power market at the end of 2008 with an installed base of more than 16,000 megawatts (MW). Disturbances such as momentary voltage dips can disconnect many wind turbines and cause instability on the transmission grid. Developed by Spain's transmission system operator Red Electrica de España (REE), P.O. 12.3 requires that wind turbines remain connected to the grid through such events.
