Grant for designing an online monitoring & diagnostics system for HVDC GIS

News - 12 February 2018 - Communication

Armando Rodrigo Mor (Department Electrical Sustainable Energy) received a grant for the project called ‘DC GIS Technology Demonstrator’ within the European H2020 project PROMOTioN.

The main focus is on the design of an online monitoring and diagnostics system for gas insulated substation (GIS) for high voltage direct current (HVDC). The system will be installed in offshore HVDC substations. Furthermore, the possibilities to replace the gas ‘sulfur hexafluoride’ by other alternative gases (less harmful to the environment) will be investigated. The research will be performed in cooperation with TenneT, ABB,  Supergrid Institute, DNV GL Kema and SHE Trans.

Two post doc will work on this project for a period of 2,5 years.

“This European project plays a significant part in our research directed at tackling energy related societal challenges and thus contributes to the energy transition”, according to Miro Zeman.
