New topology for more efficient AC/DC converters for future offshore wind farms
2004 (English)In: Proceedings of the 4th Nordic Workshop on Power and Industrial Electronics, Norpie ’04, Trondheim, Norway, June 2004, 2004, 1-6 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The concept of a novel soft-switching AC/DC converteris applied for use in future offshore wind farms. A voltagesource converter with capacitive snubbers and cycloconverters,connected via a medium frequency AC bus, promises substantialbenefits. This paper presents this new topology and describes itsprinciple of operation. Furthermore, a comparison with state-ofthe-art adjustable speed generators reveals the potential of thisnew concept.
