The collaborative project conducted by the company ANORTEC is the design and development of a system of AC-DC power conversion, and the associated control for a mini wind turbine 10kW.

The performance of the proposed system SEER designed according to the requirements and specifications imposed by the mini-turbine of the wind turbine and the AC-DC conversion stage, which are designed and single-solution that provides ANORTEC.

Unlike other existing applications this is a single-flexible solution that allows the incorporation of different turbine-rectifier systems incorporating the new system MPPT converter, which is, at the same time, easily scalable. The converter power system proposed is therefore more suitable for this specific application compared with other solutions on the market that may exist.
