PROMOTioN Online Event: MMC Test Bench Demonstration (WP 16)

A core objective of the PROMOTioN project is the investigation and demonstration of operation and control of HVDC networks as well as their interaction with offshore wind power plants. While previous work packages of the project, i.e. WP2, WP3 and WP4, focused on simulation-based investigations regarding the challenges associated with the control and protection of future MTDC networks and the connected offshore wind power plants, WP16 continuous their analysis using a laboratory-scaled MTDC demonstrator in a power-hardware-in-the-loop environment.

This demonstration will be held online on 23 June 2020, 2pm-3:30pm via Zoom, please register here.

Agenda of the web demonstration

1.    Offshore wind farm integration using MTDC networks
Demonstration of the operation of an MTDC network connecting offshore wind farms to shore using a power-hardware-in-the-loop

2.    Fault Clearing in HVDC Networks
Demonstration of DC-side fault clearing using (full-bridge based) fault-blocking converters and fault clearing based on DC circuit breakers and the PROMOTioN protection IED

3.    MMC Impedance Derivation
Demonstration of the MMC Test Bench online impedance measurement and comparison with simulation-based results
