Posted on September 10, 2008. Filed under: General, Wind |

The growth of renewable energy continues to stimulate economic development in Wisconsin, according to an article in The Capital Times:

American Superconductor Corp., which has its booming wind power business based in Middleton, on Tuesday announced the launch of its PowerModule PM3000W power converter, which was developed specifically for wind power applications.

Power converters enable wind turbines to be connected to power grids with control of the power increases and decreases endemic to wind power. Voltage regulation systems enhance power grid capacity, reliability and security.

American Superconductor already has booked orders for more than 3,300 PM3000W converters from customers in Canada, China, Germany, and India. The first converters were shipped earlier this month.
