American Superconductor Corp., a supplier of wind-turbine components, rose 13 percent, the most since April 11, after winning a contract to supply 100 megawatts of electrical systems to Inox Wind Ltd. in India. Inox designed a 2-megawatt wind turbine using American Superconductor’s technology in 2009 and on Wednesday ordered 50 of its electrical control systems to use in turbines this year, the Devens company said.
