SIT turbines deliver grid-ready power. They are equipped with an induction generator converting the variable rotation into electric power. Each of the turbines is connected to a frequency converter feeding into a DC bus installed on a tidal platform.
Finally, a common frequency converter and a large transformer produce electricity which can be fed directly into the grid. Hence, no further reconditioning is required onshore.
This principle applies to the full range of applications, from small jetty-type installations to multi-MW offshore platforms. Near-shore community-scale type installations may use power conversion onshore. The modular approach of SIT turbines allows for an optimum installation tailored to the specific site and customer needs, covering the entire range from community scale to utility scale.
