MAKE Consulting has released its list of the top 15 global wind turbine suppliers of 2014. According to the report, Siemens has taken the top spot based on MW capacity sold, GE has moved up from 6th to 2nd place and Vestas has fallen from 1st to 3rd (though GE and Vestas market shares are nearly the same). Again, Chinese OEM’s dominate the top country ranking.
Inverters are key components in any photovoltaic (PV) power system. Inverters convert direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). They control power factor (e.g. reactive power) and ensure power output quality aligns with downstream equipment specs. And finally, they play an essential role in the protection, operation and communication philosophy of the solar power plant.
MAKE Consulting has released its list of the top 15 global wind turbine suppliers of 2013. According to the report, Vestas has maintained its No. 1 spot, GE has dropped from second to sixth place, and Chinese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have secured over half of the top positions.
