Decreasing the cost of wind energy - find out how at E/E Systems for Wind Turbines from 11 - 13 May, 2011

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) Reducing constructional and operational costs, meeting the international technical requirements for grid codes and grid integration and increasing efficiency, availability and serviceability are just some of the challenges currently being faced by the wind turbines industry. IQPC’s E/E Systems for Wind Turbines Conference from 11 - 13 May in Bremen, Germany, will draw together high-level speakers from research and industry including Siemens Wind Power GmbH, PowerWind GmbH, Suzlon Energy GmbH and many more, who will present their projects and share their expertise on:

• Electric drivetrain – how to optimise wind turbine efficiency to decrease the cost of energy
• Grid codes – Understanding area specific requirements to ensure compliance to the power generation system
• Wind generators – Finding the ideal system for your application by hearing about the advantages and disadvantages of different generator topologies
• Pitch systems – Assessing the latest developments to reduce loads and enhance turbine safety
• Converters – The future of low-voltage versus medium-voltage converter technology for application in next generation wind turbines

On Friday 13 May, delegates can experience generator production live at Lloyd Dynamowerke GmbH & Co. KG during an exclusive site visit, or take part in workshops on the following topics:

• Current and future generator-converter systems
• Ensuring grid code compliant wind parks - turbine integrated solutions versa STATCOM at POC

Further companies participating in the event include: DeWind Engineering GmbH, Germanischer Lloyd, Winergy AG, ABB Switzerland Ltd., Converteam UK Ltd., Bosch Rexroth AG, Fraunhofer IWES, Orbital2 Ltd., Siemens – Loher, European Network of Transmission System (ENTSO-E), Robert Bosch GmbH, Siemens AG, AMSC Windtec GmbH and The Switch Engineering Oy.
