Collector Step-Up (CSU) Transformers

Typically, each wind turbine or solar panel is connected to a three phase step-up transformer (located at the base of the wind turbine or panel) which boosts the generating output to a collector bus. From there, all the power is then interconnected to a Collector Step-Up Transformer located in a substation where it is transported to the electricity grid.

Prolec GE CSU’s are designed with the best practices to withstand any electronic noise coming from the inverter technology used in wind turbines or solar panels.
