AEG Power Solutions has announced that it has been selected by the Institute Laue-Langevin (ILL) the world’s largest neutron research facility, to provide its power supply system.

Following the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011, a decision was taken to improve the safety of the ILL site, including new construction work with improved backup protection to the electrical supply.

ILL chose AEG PS to provide the power supply systems required for this change for several reasons, most notably its capability in ensuring resistance to seismic events and high temperature. The power electronics systems specialist was also selected thanks to its ability to meet the short delivery timescales of only 10 weeks required for the project.

The power supply system includes two of AEG PS’ Profitec chargers, rated at 300A, and two of the company’s 20kVA Transokraft inverters. The products met all necessary approvals from the French Nuclear Safety Authority.
