SuperGrid Institute has been rewarded for its ambitious intellectual property strategy, ranking first of the top 10 patent applicants in the SME category for 2018. Created in 2014, SuperGrid Institute has already filed 50 patent applications, including 16 in 2018 alone.

PhD Loriane DESMARS « Study of electrical and thermal properties of epoxy-anhydride composite materials for high voltage insulation »

By |avril 2nd, 2019|Categories: Appareillage électrique haute tension, Phd, Systèmes de câbles & jonctions HVDC|

The work presented in this manuscript has been motivated by the necessity to develop more efficient electrical insulating materials compared to commercially available ones. An epoxy-anhydride matrix filled with micron sized alumina, often used to produce GIS solid insulators, has been used as a reference for this study.

The main objective of this thesis is to develop a methodology to size PETT topologies, in order to compare them.

PhD Amjad MOUHAIDALI « Contribution to the modelling of HVDC cables for electromagnetic transient simulations »

By |février 13th, 2019|Categories: Architecture & systèmes du supergrid, Phd|

The integration of new technologies in the electric grids made them more and more complex, and most likely future growth of power grids will be based more on underground cables than overhead lines. One problem here, is that the mathematical model for electromagnetic simulation of power cables still has some shortcomings regarding stability, accuracy and passivity. In this thesis, we evaluate the cable parameters using analytical and numerical methods.

PhD Juan-Carlos GONZALEZ « Transient stability of high voltage AC-DC electric transmission systems »

By |février 11th, 2019|Categories: Architecture & systèmes du supergrid, Phd|

This thesis addresses the transient stability analysis of hybrid AC/DC electric transmission systems. More precisely two questions sought to be investigated: What is the impact of a DC contingency on AC transient stability? How can we take advantage of the DC transmission systems as control inputs in order to enhance AC transient stability?
