VS Induction Generators

Turbine operation at peak efficiency over a large range of heads and flows
GE is the only company offering induction generators with these power ratings. The variable speed machine allows turbine operation at peak efficiency over a large range of heads and flows. GE offers an integrated system solution combining the induction generator with a converter and also the electrical balance of plant.
Having a proven track record and experience in supplying induction machines for numerous different applications (mine hoists, propulsion motors for marine, high powered motors in Oil & Gas), GE's induction generator has been chosen as the preferred technology for the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Project.
