Low wind turbine costs and LCoE
Conventional concepts with motors running directly on the grid involve certain technological drawbacks. Unwanted loads due to abrupt start-up operations increase mechanical wear and tear. In addition, the electrical and hydraulic systems need to harmonize.
These problems can be addressed through the use of a controlled multi-axis drive system that synchronizes and optimizes the drive output power of the individual motors. KEBA’s modular KeDrive D3 system supports this approach using state-of-the-art servo drive technology.
Your benefits at a glance
- Higher energy yield thanks to more accurate yawing
- Significantly less wear of mechanical components thanks to the active clamping of the axes
- Controlled acceleration and braking torque for 4-quadrant operation
- Lower wind turbine costs thanks to the replacement of slow hydraulic brakes
