AMSC says it has inked a $30 million deal to provide its wind turbine electrical control systems (ECS) to Inox Wind Ltd.

AMSC expects to begin shipments of this order this quarter and to complete shipments in 2014. This is the fifth and largest order that AMSC has received from Inox since the company began volume production of its 2 MW wind turbines, which were licensed from AMSC in May 2009.

AMSC's ECS include a wind turbine power converter cabinet, internal power supply and various controls. Together, these systems control power flows, regulate voltage, monitor system performance, and control the pitch of the wind turbine blades and the yaw of the turbines.
