HVDC-VSC systems training May 2020
The purpose of this training is to build and strengthen the technical and analytical capacityof the participants and therefore their respective institutions in the domain of HVDC VSC Systems.
The large-scale development of renewable energy sources in transmission grids, along with public demand to avoid construction of new overhead lines, has led to increased applications of long high-voltage underground cables, the addition of dynamic reactive power support, and new HVDC links using underground DC cables.The increasing penetration of power electronics-based devices in the network has a significant impact on grid performance and reliability. It requires improvements in control and protection systems and understanding of dynamic behaviour.Specific skills and tools are required to study these technologies.
Target audience & Required skills
This course is intended for engineers, researchers, operators and maintenance personnel, to provide up-to-date technical expertise for HVDC-VSC projects.
This training session will be interactive, including presentations from experts as well as case studies.
Training materials will be provided during the sessions.
Each participant will receive a temporary license of the simulation tool EMTP (www.emtp.com) valid during the training. It will be used to illustrate concepts presented during training. No prerequisites are required.
A tutorial will also be conducted in the real-time lab with HVDC VSC replicas to illustrate how Hardware In the Loop (HIL)simulation can support integration of HVDC in transmission grids.
