Plug connectors increase the value of wind energy investments

Levelized costs of electricity

The value of a wind turbine (WT) is not only measured by the investments into machines and site development, but also in the way it is used later. In the long run, components which simplify installation and maintenance can improve the value of the plant enormously. 

If a wind turbine manufacturer uses pluggable connectors for the electrical connections between plant modules, this can lower both the investment costs (CAPEX) and the operational costs (OPEX).

The use of pluggable connectors speeds up the installation process and increases the modularity of the WT.

The pluggable connectors also open up options for the modularisation of the power cabinets. The value of pluggable connections for installing and operating a WT can be illustrated with numerous other application examples.

Increased availability for wind turbines

The installers and operators of wind turbines are under significant pressure to save time and costs. A wind turbine that is not ready for use produces no electricity and achieves no grid feed-in compensation.

Wind turbines are being designed with increasing modularity. This helps to increase the flexibility of their construction, while also accelerating the process of replacing components.

Modular design enables an efficient pre-assembly of individual units, allowing the individual components to be tested for functionality before use.

The individual units are only assembled into a complete wind turbine once they have reached the construction site, thus making the use of connectors a real advantage:For example, drives for the rotor blade adjustment and wind tracking, as well as components such as slip ring assemblies or generator brakes, can be connected and installed simply and quickly.

Thanks to the use of connectors, there is no longer a need for complex hand wiring work. In the event of maintenance, downtime can be significantly reduced as worn or defective parts can be quickly replaced with Plug & Play functionality.

Short the downtimes due to maintenance and service!

Current sensors and current transformers: Precise. Reliable. Safe.

HARTING current sensors and current transformers
HARTING current sensors and current transformers

Whether for wind energy or industrial applications: the ability to quickly and accurately detect current is required in order to precisely control power electronics systems such as frequency converters, traction converters, UPS systems or welding systems.

HARTING Hall-effect current sensors have been specifically designed to measure high currents in such environments.

These sensors are available for rated currents from 200 to 2000 A, and with a measuring range of up to 4000 A.

Learn more about our current sensors and current transformers

Reliable even under extreme conditions

HARTING's current sensors are used in wind turbines, traction converters, welding and solar inverters, as well as in the drive controls for machines and cranes. They comply with a wide range of local requirements.
