SuperGrid Institute’s project selected for Grid2030

2018-12-06T17:47:18+00:00December 6th, 2018|Event, Supergrid Architecture & Systems|

SuperGrid Institute and IMDEA joint forces with the support of REE, and created a consortium. This consortium was selected from more than 80 projects. Through the "Reduced Inertia Transient Stability Enhancement" (RITSE) project, SuperGrid Institute will strive to improve the transient stability of the AC networks by coordinating the use of batteries and HVDC links.

PhD Miguel ROMERO RODRIGUEZ “Supervisory control synthesis for MMC-based HVDC systems”

2018-11-09T13:52:00+00:00November 9th, 2018|Phd, Supergrid Architecture & Systems|

This work proposes a method for the full development, from conception to implementation, of the supervisory control of a multi-terminal HVDC (MT-HVDC) system.

PhD William LEON GARCIA “Protection strategy for HVDC networks”

2018-10-08T14:42:46+00:00January 26th, 2018|Phd, Supergrid Architecture & Systems|

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.

PhD Kosei SHINODA “Control and Energy Management of MMC-based Multi-Terminal HVDC Grids”

2018-10-08T14:42:55+00:00January 2nd, 2018|Phd, Supergrid Architecture & 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’’

2018-10-08T14:43:04+00:00January 2nd, 2018|Phd, Supergrid Architecture & Systems|

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.
