Richardson Electronics' ULTRAPEM™ line is a series of ultracapacitor-based modules that replace lead acid batteries within various OEM wind turbine platforms utilizing electric pitch systems. The ultracapacitor-based energy storage series consists of pitch energy modules that operate at greater voltage than 100 VDC. These plug-and-play modules are easy to install, increase uptime of wind turbines, and reduce labor costs.

The patent-pending ULTRAUPS3000™ reflects the ingenuity and evolution of its market-leading solutions. The ULTRAUPS3000™ is designed for operation in harsh environments unlike other energy storage solutions such as lead acid or lithium-based UPS systems. With the wider operating temperature of Richardson Electronics hybrid ultracapacitor solution, the product will help solve issues related to the short life of other technologies.

The patent-pending shunt resistor is a drop-in replacement for the OEM shunt resistors used in utility scale wind turbines that utilize electric pitch systems. The shunt is used to monitor current feedback to the turbine controller during pitch events, allowing the controller to notify operators of potential electrical or mechanical issues within the pitch system. This device will reduce failures in short-circuited pitch motor scenarios and decrease turbine down time.
