Wind Power Inverters Surge Protection

Surge Protective Device (SPD) applications for Wind Power Inverters provide critical protection from the dangers of transient voltage.

Wind and solar power, by nature, are intermittent. If a system is balanced to accommodate solar load, even a stray cloud can destroy that balance. Wind can gust from 0 to 60 mph in less than one minute, causing substantial voltage spikes and disturbances.

Although Inverters have different designs for solar and wind applications, they are key components in both systems.

Inverters convert DC power generated by solar panels or wind turbine into usable AC power that is synchronized with the grid-tie system, which powers the electrical system in a stand-alone or battery storage design.

However, Inverters are full of electronics. Their purpose is to synchronize AC power with the grid-supplied power. Failure of inverters is unacceptable since the energy generation systems rely on them to properly function.

Solar panel installations require surge protection to protect costly inverters that can fail during lightning storms. Wind Turbines require surge protection to protect voltage regulators and motor driven generators. SPDs protect critical inverters on both the output (AC) and input (DC) electronics.

Types of Wind Powers Inverters

There are basically two different types of inverters for Wind Power:

  • Grid-Connect Inverter
  • Off-Grid Inverter

Regardless of design type or function, these critical pieces of Wind Turbine equipment need High Quality, High Performance SPDs.
