American Superconductor Corp (AMSC) has won a $9m follow-on order from India-based Inox Wind to supply wind turbine electrical control systems.

Last year, AMSC won an initial order from Inox for 17 wind turbine electrical control systems that monitor and control the turbines’ operation and flow of electricity to the power grid.

The systems are being utilized in 2MW doubly-fed induction wind turbines that Inox is manufacturing under a global AMSC Windtec license.

AMSC’s wind turbine power electronics and control systems include the company’s proprietary PowerModule power converters, pitch and yaw converters, SCADA systems and integrated control systems.
