Massive renewable power operations, like this wind farm, benefit from the reliability and performance of Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide.
Renewable Energy

Wind Power

Wolfspeed’s SiC-based converters outperform silicon-based devices by conserving energy and reducing system size and lifetime cost.

Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide for Wind Power Applications

Harvesting energy from the wind isn’t a new concept — just check out the historical windmills all over the world. But today’s wind farms are a completely new solution, and with massive turbines able to harvest huge amounts of energy, the performance and reliability of these systems is key. Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide (SiC) is up for the challenge.

The future of wind power is fueled by Wolfspeed

Wolfspeed’s SiC-based converters outperform silicon-based devices by conserving energy, reducing system size and lifetime cost. For wind power systems, which need to successfully harness the energy of the wind with as few power losses as possible, these performance metrics are critical.

Wolfspeed solutions for wind power systems

Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide products are built for high levels of performance and robustness, while offering industry-leading reliability, making them an ideal choice for wind power systems.

Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide MOSFETs, modules and diodes not only offer significant performance advantages compared with traditional silicon components, they can also help reduce weight and cost of a design. Due to the high performance of Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide, many designs can use fewer components, lowering the overall system cost and weight.

Improved Reliability, Cleaner Power from Wolfspeed SiC

Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide is uniquely capable of incredible reliability and efficiency, even in the most demanding power applications. That’s because Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide offers:
Up To
30%
Lower Losses
Up To
50%
Higher Power Density
Up To
