Vestas and EDPR install #wind turbine-coupled #hybrid demonstrator:

EDP Renewables (EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the world’s largest wind energy producers, and Vestas, the global leader in wind energy, have built a turbine-coupled hybrid demonstrator with solar at the Janda III wind farm in Cádiz. The hybrid demonstrator is a combination of an existing Vestas V112-3.0 MW turbine and 372 kW of a new solar photovoltaic (PV). The PV power is fed to the turbine as direct current, which is then converted and transformed by the turbine’s ad-hoc modified power conversion system in order to export the power to the grid. By combining wind and PV, the demonstrator offers increased capacity factor and annual energy production.
