Wind emulator
Manufactured at the UPC: 1

The wind emulator reproduces the wind force on a shaft,  when the speed  it is  programmed. It is possible a static programming of the shaft speed or torque , as well as dynamic  by means of a ramp. Two electrical generators are connected to the shaft (a induction generator and permanent magnet generator). A power electronic converter connects the generators to the grid or to a load, enabling all types of tests. The power electronic converter controls the generator and it is based on three-level converters in a back-to-back connection.

The UPC offers the services performance that the equipment could carry out.
