Pieper, J.T. (author)
A meshed North Sea offshore electricity grid with high renewable energy penetration, as envisioned by the European Commission, is still at its infancy. Currently, point-to-point high-voltage DC interconnections across borders are already being implemented successfully, but the next steps of expanding these interconnectors with additional...

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission system technology has recently attracted a lot of attention within the power system community. Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) HVDC is the state of the art HVDC transmission technology, which contains hundreds and even thousands of submodules. It is the modularity, scalability and efficiency...

Van Leeuwen, J.M. (author)
Static voltage stability study for the Dutch grid and investigation of feasibility of scenario-based external constraints for the flow-based capacity calculation process. This process is used to determine the cross-border transport capacity available to the power markets in flow-based market coupling.

Sanchez, A. (author)
Denmark aims for a 50% wind integration in 2020. In the current scenario, where wind represents around 34% of domestic consumption, mothballing of conventional power plants and heavy dependency in interconnection lines is already the trend. One of the strategies from the Transmission System Operator is to integrate a big volume of flexible loads...

With the development of offshore wind farms, Voltage Source Converter based High Voltage Direct Current or Multi-terminal High Voltage Direct Current Technology (VSC-HVDC/MTDC) is becoming promising in the field of large-capacity and long-distance power transmission. However, its extreme vulnerability to DC contingencies remains a challenge in...

The preferred technology for connecting far from shore offshore wind plants to the onshore AC power system is the voltage-source converter based high voltage direct current (VSC-HVDC) transmission system. There is a large number of advantages, namely, the decoupled active and reactive power control, the capability to reverse power flows without...

Modern transmission power networks consist mainly of High Voltage overhead lines, since the later have proven their high operational reliability. However, technological developments have made it possible to use High Voltage cables, not only in the distribution grids, but also at higher transmission voltage levels. Thus, more mixed configurations...

During the last 50 years electricity demand has significantly increased. Large amounts of electricity are transported from the generation to the consumption sites. Overhead lines or underground cables are used to transport the required energy. High voltage levels are used to reduce the transmission losses. Power transformers are responsible for...

Power transformers are inseparable parts of the power system and the tap changer is an equally necessary part of the transformer. In order to keep the availability of power systems high, the reliability of the transformers must be improved. This can be done by improving the reliability of the tap changer, as tap changer failures are the cause...

Ratzlaff, T. (author)
As wind and solar displace conventional generators, concerns are growing on the effect these asynchronous generators may have on such frequency stabilization services as primary and inertial response. An investigation into the system inertia of a future European energy scenario that integrates a high percentage of renewables was done using the...
