Since 2016, SuperGrid Institute’s program 4 has intensely worked on the specification of a test platform with the capability to go up to 40bars of internal pressure and validate subsea node, a SuperGrid Institute concept for offshore meshed networks. Beside its imposing size, the particularity of this platform is that it allows combined testing functions on subsea high-voltage cable systems including water pressure, di
Multi-terminal high voltage direct current (MTDC) grids, or supergrids, are considered an interesting solution to integrate large amounts of renewable power and release congestion of existing AC power grids. Nonetheless, safe and reliable operation of such grids require the development of new DC protection systems.
The scope of this thesis includes control and management of the Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC)-based Multi-Terminal Direct Current (MTDC).
PhD Swann GASNIER “Decision support framework for offshore wind farm electrical networks: Robust design and assessment under uncertainties’’
Large offshore wind farms will be important players within the future energy landscape. What is the expected benefit for a project is an essential issue from Investor side, considering both technical and economic aspects. Levelized Cost Of Energy - LCOE - is a standard economic indicator which allows to assess the economic viability of a project.
