The event was a complete success!
During AWEA WINDPOWER 2010 Conference, MH&W proved, once again, to be a notable solution provider to many companies in the wind and solar industries experiencing very complex challenges.
What did we do?
“We spoke and meet with a vast number of company representatives at the conference. We were able to qualify leads from at least 10% of attending exhibitors, thus making this one of the most successful trade shows in MH&W International 46 year history. This speaks volumes about our products and the industry’s acceptance of our capabilities as a resourceful manufacturer’s source of supply,” said Bill Wilson, National Sales Manager- MH&W Renewable Energy Division.
How did we do it?
We displayed a variety of assemblies that are practical application solutions, such as the following:
Chang Sung MegaFlux Block Cores for Inverters: Block cores manufactured in the 26 permeability MegaFlux materials are advantageous in building DC/AC smoothing chokes (reactors) for the inverter circuit. The benefits of using block cores in 26 perm MegaFlux are: extreme inductor design flexibility, ease of manufacture using large gage wire/large foil conductors, large Bsat and DC bias characteristics, reduced reactor size, and reduced operating temperature. Blocks are available in sizes up to 80mm in length.
Magnetec Cool Blue Cores: Cool Blue cores from Magnetec totally absorb unwanted asymmetric current, which runs over sensitive parts like bearing, gearboxes and couples into electrical control systems of a wind system. As a consequence of parasitic currents, the bearings corrugate, followed by an electrical breakdown of the lubrication, finally causing early failure of the generator/motor. The result of the Magnetec cores to the system is increased service life of motor bearings, and reduced maintenance and stoppages. Reliability of the system is rising because of reduced radiated emissions. Costs are down because all-steel bearings can be used instead of super high cost ceramic/hybrid bearings. No effect on manufacturer’s warranty.
The AWEA WINDPOWER 2010 Conference floor was over 369,000 square feet (six football fields) by 100,000 square feet (almost two football fields), larger than the previous year. The nearly 1,400 exhibitors came from 48 states, as well as 22 countries including Germany (50+ exhibitors), Canada (40+ exhibitors), Denmark (30+ exhibitors), China (30+ exhibitors), and Spain (25+ exhibitors). Totally unbelievable but WINDPOWER 2011 is off to a great start with three-fourths of the show floor already sold. VERY EXCITING!
