DC-DC Converters for HVDC Grids: A Survey
Technical and economic assessment tool for offshore wind generation connection scheme:
Application to comparing 33 kV and 66 kV AC collector grids
The paper presents a tool for technical and economic assessment of offshore wind power connecting architectures; they highly influence cost effectiveness of offshore wind generation, particularly when power electronic converter based transmission technologies and long distance transmission cables are employed. Due to its models flexibility and accuracy, the developed tool is powerful for analysis and design of innovative connection alternatives.
