ABB is one of the few organizations that has been involved in the commercialization of wind power since the earliest days. As the largest supplier of electrical components, systems, and services to the wind power industry, we have decades of experience and have installed more equipment in wind farms than any other supplier.
ABB’s proven products for wind turbines and wind farms are designed and built to operate for long life cycles under the varied and harsh operating conditions common to the wind industry. ABB engineers with years of wind power experience help design the products and work with turbine manufacturers, developers, EPC’s, and utilities to correctly and efficiently integrate these products into wind industry applications.
Systems and solutions for successful utility plant design
Turbines are comprised of subsystems working in unison to efficiently and safely produce power. ABB products are used throughout these subsystems, from the emergency stop button to the generator.
Managing power has never been as complex as it is today, and its complexity will only increase in the future as a more diverse portfolio of power generation assets comes online.
ABB offers a range of products and solutions that help to efficiently connect wind power production in low and medium voltage applications including energy storage.
In-depth knowledge of renewable power generation technologies and comprehensive experience with grid codes and utility practices in use around the world enables us to provide grid connection solutions for wind plants.
Electrical balance of plant
ABB’s solutions for wind power plants are designed to meet grid standards, maximize plant performance and provide owners with a rapid return on investment and long plant operating life.
Optimized standard concepts for each stage of the wind power plant process and a complete capability in design, engineering, and commissioning.
ABB turnkey solutions capitalize on ABB’s long expertise in the development and manufacturing of secondary substations and medium voltage (MV) components.
ABB solutions include all critical complete plug-and-play portfolio inside the power collection and eHouses.
There has never been a better time to upgrade your existing installations for more efficient, more productive output.
With our market-leading products and cross-platform solutions, ABB is the perfect partner to help you repower any wind plant.
SafePlus medium voltage gas-insulated switchgear
SafePlus compact switchgear is a completely sealed system with all live parts enclosed in a stainless-steel tank ensuring constant atmospheric conditions. Perfect for use in-tower or in combination with an outdoor enclosure or eHouse for outdoor solutions.
Tested according to IEEE/ANSI/IEC standards and UL listed, SafePlus is tailor-made for wind power.
Relion® protection relays
The Relion® product family offers the widest range of products for the protection, control, measurement and supervision of power systems for IEC and ANSI applications.
To ensure interoperable and future-proof solutions, Relion products have been designed to implement the core values of the IEC 61850 standard. You can benefit from ABB’s leading-edge technology, global application knowledge and experienced support network
ABB recognizes the industry’s focus on safety and reliability and helps meet these goals with the R-MAG® circuit breaker for medium-voltage primary substations.
Based on magnetic actuation, the R-MAG has fewer moving parts and is mechanically simpler than breakers with traditional spring mechanisms. The durable R-MAG design and low maintenance requirements have been consistently tested over the past decade in over 10,000 installations.
