Amantys dramatically simplifies medium voltage design
from Cambridge Network
A dramatically simplified medium voltage design for high power wind turbines is being developed by a cleantech spin-out company from the University of Cambridge. Amantys Limited, based on research originating from Patrick Palmer, Ph.D., of the University of Cambridge's Department of Engineering and recently funded by the IP Group plc, has developed technology that will simplify the design of medium voltage power systems using insulated gate bipolar transistors. The first application of the technology is for medium voltage inverters in high power wind turbines. "Large wind turbines require medium voltage power systems to deliver the power efficiently," said Bryn Parry, Managing Director of Amantys "Our technology significantly simplifies the design of these systems through close control of the IGBTs in the system."
