Spotlight on Jicable’23 !

We still have some time until June gets here but the Institute is already busy preparing for Jicable’23! Scientific papers, tutorials, a technical visit and a stand… SuperGrid Institute is highly invested in this edition – and we’re excited about it! Here is a quick overview on what’s coming…

Throughout this month of March, our cable systems and insulating materials experts are getting stuck into writing the papers that have been submitted and accepted by the conference organisers. SuperGrid Institute will present 7 scientific papers to their peers during the conference, with topics as varied and in-depth as always … about direct current of course!

To give just an example, we can announce the presentation of a paper on our first transient overvoltage test on a 525kV DC cable system.

Throughout the conference, we invite you to come and visit our stand n°37 📍 where you can meet and exchange with our experts on these contributions and on all the innovations on offer at SuperGrid Institute.

A tutorial on MVDC grids

Energy requirements are changing rapidly, with an ever-increasing demand for innovative solutions capable of integrating renewable energy sources, supporting data centres, transporting electricity, etc. In response to the requirement to drastically reduce CO2 emissions globally, MVDC electricity networks are the solution.

SuperGrid Institute is pleased to be presenting a tutorial on this topic during the conference on Sunday and Monday. Entitled “MVDC grid perspectives: applications, operations, equipment and cable systems“, this tutorial will be presented by Piotr Dworakowski & Martin Henriksen.

The tutorial will be supported by other scientific papers that we will present during the conference.

SuperGrid Institute opens its doors for a technical visit

To mark the occasion of Jicable’s first event in Lyon, at the congress centre, SuperGrid Institute is pleased to be opening its doors to the conference attendees as part of the technical visits organised on Thursday the 22nd of June.

During the technical visit, visitors will discover the Institute’s state of the art test platforms for HV and MV DC technologies, used to characterise advanced dielectric materials and alternative gases for improved equipment design.

Let’s catch up in Lyon from the 18th to the 22nd of June 2023! Stay tuned for more information.
