This certification confirms that the design, documentation and manufacture of ACS880-87LC convertors comply with the relevant provisions of GL-IV-1:2010 Fan Certification Guide.It demonstrates to the FAN OEMS the quality and reliability of ABB converters and can help shorten the time it takes to obtain fan certification.
On November 4, 2016, Zurich-ABB, a leading power and automation technology group, obtained DNV GL component certification for its acS880-87LC fan converters.DNV GL's certification process complies with GL-IV-1:2010 Fan Certification Guide, which involves a detailed assessment of ABB's design, manufacturing, quality management and testing procedures and facilities.
Acs880-87lc is a full power liquid cooling fan converter.It is suitable for onshore and offshore wind motors.Its compact structure is convenient for engine room and tower installation.Modular converters with ratings of 1.5 to 8 MW are used in back-to-back configurations for induction and permanent magnet generators.Direct torque Control (DTC) ensures fast and accurate control of the generator and meets the grid specification.
The certificate was awarded on 27 September at the WindEnergy event in Hamburg, Germany, by Dr Matthias-klaus Schwarz, Head of DNV GL's electrical Systems division, to Petri Maksimainen, ABB's full power converter product manager.Petri Maksimainen said, "The certification further enhances the customer's confidence in the high quality and reliability of our converters.It also demonstrates that our converters meet all relevant technical standards and requirements, enabling OEMS to more easily obtain certification for their fans."
Dr. Matthias-klaus Schwarz also stated, "We are pleased to continue our long-term partnership with ABB to help them support customers with high quality levels of wind power components.The component certificate is issued by an independent certification body and the award of the certificate confirms the reliability of ABB converters.ABB converters are designed to strict quality and safety standards and we look forward to working with ABB again in the future."
