SMP’s chokes for inverters in wind turbines are now also approved for use in offshore installations. These inductive components feature low losses and stray fields and a compact design. The chokes’ cores consist of powder composites. The direct current from the wind turbines must be converted into a sinusoidal waveform with the values required by the grid. The converter’s filters ensure that the current being fed into the grid exhibits a near sinusoidal waveform.
