09:00 - 10:30 Electrical aspects and grid integration
Science & Research  

Room: Llevant

Session description

The grid integration of wind power has always been a challenge. In this session a range of speakers from academia and industry will address the impact of wind on network operation and the development of a large scale offshore HVDC grid, offshore systems, the state-of-the-art in HVDC technologies, as well as more specific topics including the design of offshore networks from a reliability perspective and the transient response of HVDC links.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the effect of wind power on grid operation and development via case studies
  • Get an overview of the state of the art in HVDC offshore grid research
  • Get acquainted with specific topics of offshore grids, including reliability and transient response aspects
This session will be chaired by:
Stavros Papathanassiou, National Technical University of Athens, Greece
Co-chair: John Olav Tande, SINTEF, Norway


Olimpo Anaya-Lara
University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom
