Maximising wind turbines’ electric capabilities
FASTAP aims to disrupt the existing Wind Energy market with a new very fast electronic on-load tap changer transformer technology for wind turbines, offering new vision of power generation: responsive, flexible and adaptative. This solution will increase the wind turbines (WTG) operability while reducing wind’s leverage cost of energy.
FASTAP will increase the annual energy production of WTG up to 5%. WTG electric capabilities will be maximized and systems will incorporate new gridconnection points. The project starts at TRL6 and will be completely developed through 2021-2023 reaching a TRL9 in 33 months.
FASTAP will feed the growing energy needs worldwide using green sources. This project is focused on the reduction of CO2 emissions, and it will secure EU green jobs by increasing the wind market capacity.
FASTAP aims to reduce wind’s Leverage Cost of Energy up to 5.5%. It will engage the companies involved in the commercialization and design of WFs..
