PROgress on Meshed HVDC Offshore Transmission Networks

The European energy system is in transition, and is moving toward a more sustainable energy mix based on renewable resources. A major challenge here is that renewable sources such as wind are interconnected with the rest of the system through power electronics devices. Project PROMOTION will investigate the characteristics and performance of multi-terminal HVDC interconnections that are supposed to be established among off-shore wind parks and on-shore grids in different countries.

More information about the research that is being performed by TU Delft can be found here.

TenneT is highly interested In the performance and behaviour of future environmentally friendly DC circuit breakers.
