System Studies of HVDC links using Real-Time Simulation
Technische Universität Darmstadt
The increase penetration of power electronics equipment in the network will have more and more impact on the grid performance and reliability. Power electronic devices as HVDCs, FACTs and wind power plants include control and protection systems with a dynamic behavior more complex com-pared to standard AC devices. Thus it requires skills and tools dedicated to this technology.
To cope with such challenges, RTE (French TSO) have resort to a real time (RT) simulation laboratory. In this laboratory replicas are connected to RT simulators by means of hardware in the loop (HIL) setup. A replica is an exact copy of the actual control and protection system installed on site.
This presentation provides an overview on RTE experience in system studies of HVDC links using Real-Time Simulation.
After the presentation all participants are invited to drinks and food at the nearby laboratory by the Young EnergyNet.
A registration is not necessary but a short mail if you plan to come would be helpful for further planning.
