HVDC Course

HVDC grids and Offshore Wind Online Course

Week 41 – lectures are available
Week 42 – exercise sessions
Week 43 – panel sessions

Venue: The course will be organized online, using Microsoft TEAMS platform during October 2021

Description of the course
The course is based on the book “HVDC Grids: For Offshore and Supergrid of the Future”, edited by the course coordinators.

The rapid development of offshore wind power, especially in North Sea, is favoring –and is also favored by – development of DC transmission. Based on the development of modern conversion technology (voltage source converter) the plans for the interconnection of multiple renewable power sources, loads and AC grids through DC technologies are leading to an exciting transmission concept: HVDC grids. HVDC grids and Supergrids have sparked so much interest that researchers and engineers across the globe are talking about them, studying them, supporting or questioning them. The main motivation of this course is to present a complete picture of HVDC grid technologies and offshore wind power by collecting and summarizing recent technological advances, academic research development and engineering applications.

The course is structure around 4 thematic areas: HVDC technology, HVDC grids, Offshore wind, Planning & Operations. It consists of recorded lectures, hands-on exercises and live Q&A sessions with the lecturers. All lecturers are internationally recognized experts in the area and they come from both academic and industry.
