The objective of the training is to present a technical hands-on on HVDC-VSC systems. It is organized in collaboration with RTE.
The training covers the following topics:
Introduction to VSC-MMC technology
Modeling and simulation of HVDC-VSC systems with EMTP
Control and protection of VSC-MMC stations
Specifications of HVDC-VSC projects
Maintenance of HVDC converters
This course presents practical and technical information on HVDC-VSC systems and operations based on real projects.
Temporary EMTP licenses will be provided to the audience. EMTP will be used to illustrate concepts and performances of HVDC-VSC systems.
The duration is 5 days.
The training starts at 8:30 am and ends at 5:00 pm every day.
Lunch breaks (included in the course fee) are from noon to 1:00 pm.
This course is intended for engineers, researchers, operators and maintenance personnel. It provides an up-to-date technical expertise on HVDC-VSC projects.
Computer and temporary EMTP license
Each participant will have to bring a personal computer. EMTP temporary licenses will be provided for the duration of the course.
