Wind and Solar Converters

MV3000 drives are extensively used in renewable energy applications.

In the wind industry, the MV3000 is used in the Siemens 2.3MW converters together with the 3.0 MW Permanent Magnet turbine and the 3.6MW offshore model.

It is estimated that more than 10,000 converters of the 2.3MW rating were built and are in service today.

AVID can offer a complete spares service and also an upgrade path to use the Avid Extreme Inverter as a drop in replacement for existing DELTA units. So the choices are:

  • Exchange worn or blown DELTAs or remanufactured units
  • Fit new originally factory specification DELTAs
  • Upgrade to AEI

All models of 800A and 1000A DELTA are supported by Avid
