    InnoDC项目相关内容如下:

    The project

    InnoDC (Innovative tools for offshore wind and DC grids) is a European Training Network (ETN) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme. ETNs provide training through doctoral research to talented early stage researchers (ESRs).

    InnoDC ESRs will enrol on PhD degree programmes and be employed for 36 months in a network of universities and industry with expertise in offshore wind power generation and supply. Through the individual ESR research projects, InnoDC will address the technical challenges linked to the development of offshore grids and hybrid AC/DC systems.

    We’re looking to appoint and train 15 promising early career researchers in a network of universities and companies active in research into offshore wind power. ESRs will study for PhD degrees, receive wide-ranging technical and personal skills training and disseminate and communicate their work to a wide range of people. Not sure if this is the right kind of role for you? MEDOW was a very similar type of project which concluded in Spring 2017. Take a look at the training that its ESRs enjoyed and their impressive list of publications!

    Project title: Performance of outdoor insulation under HVDC stress

    Outdoor insulation is prone to the harsh weather and pollution conditions that exist near coastal areas, where offshore HVDC cables connect to the main grid. In this project, it is proposed to carry out both laboratory and field tests at a substation as future connection point of HVDC offshore cable on silicone rubber material samples and full insulators. Such experimental data will be used to develop models of material and insulator performances under HVDC, and to support engineering design of outdoor polymeric insulators for HVDC networks.

    Project title: Tools for analysis of novel concepts of transmission systems for offshore wind power plants

    The need to reduce the cost of the offshore converter station has motivated the proposal of several pairs of combination of transmission system and offshore grid:

    ·   VSC-HVDC transmission + AC offshore grid at standard frequency. Possibility of using higher voltage at the collection grid (66 kV)

    ·   VSC-HVDC transmission + AC offshore grid at non-standard frequency

    ·   VSC-HVDC transmission + AC offshore grid at variable frequency with wind turbines of more reduced power electronics.

    ·   VSC-HVDC transmission + DC collection grid using DC-DC converters.

    ·   VSC-HVDC transmission + DC collection connecting the wind turbines in series.

    ·   HVDC transmission using diode rectifiers or thyristors in the offshore converter stations + AC offshore grid controlled by the wind turbines.

    ·   AC low frequency transmission + AC low frequency collection grid

    The present project aims at studying the previous plus some additional concepts in order to develop a tool to allow a fair comparison both technical and economical. The comparison will include aspects related to the technology, efficiency, reliability, maintainability and availability of the different components and systems. Different scenarios will be studied and compared.

    Project title: Cluster supervisory control of large offshore wind power plants

    The main objective is to first analyse the challenges that can arise when several wind power plants, with wind turbines from different manufacturers, are connected to the same large HVDC converter (both VSC and diode-rectifier solutions). Secondly, the study will develop methods for implementing coordinated and synchronized active power control and reactive power management in the wind cluster. The main tasks will be: to develop OWPP cluster model with including generic representation of wind turbines; to implement and analyse cluster supervisory controller for coordinated and synchronized active power control; to implement and analyse cluster supervisory controller for reactive power management, both in normal and fault operation; and to evaluate of stability and robustness of the chosen solutions

    Project title: Reliable operation of hybrid AC/DC power systems in different time frames under uncertainty

    Each state is defined by a set of uncertainties (which are typically larger when further from real time), and by a number of possible control means (of which the availability reduces and cost increases closer to real time). The task at hand is to develop a mathematical framework which takes into account uncertainty in the different operational time frames and the multi-stakeholder nature of the system to optimize the controllable HVDC links in the power system to achieve a cost-effective and reliable operation. An ideal mathematical framework will result in a non-linear, non-convex, stochastic problem of high dimension. A main part of the research will consist of translating the ideal mathematical framework into computational feasible and operationally implementable approaches.

    Recruiting organisation: CG Holdings, Belgium

    Project title: Cost effective solutions for offshore transmission

    The offshore substation and the transport cable account by far for the bulk of the costs of the connection. As such, achievement of cost savings on both of these items significantly reduces the life time costs and becomes an enabler for offshore development. This project aims at reducing the CAPEX and OPEX of such systems by focusing on the offshore collector platforms from a system perspective, both for connections to AC and to DC systems. Currently, substations are designed individually for single wind farms. The consideration of multiple wind farm platforms as a whole creates opportunity for cost saving and improves overall economic performance.

    Project title: Dynamic stability of power systems with high penetration of power electronic-based interfaces

    The main focus of the project is to analyse the dynamic stability of power converters, starting from a detailed evaluation of how to represent converters and their surrounding AC power systems for system-wide dynamic stability analysis. Due to the large bandwidth of the converters and their controllers, dynamic interactions with the surrounding AC systems are no longer necessarily limited to low-frequency interactions, but can also include higher frequency resonances between the AC systems and different converters, amplified through the converter controls. These relatively new types of interactions are challenging the use of traditional phasor-based analysis tools for studying the system dynamics. The project aims at understanding and defining the limits of phasor-based models for local and system-wide control studies involving high amount of power-electronics and propose solutions for the modelling and simulation of such issues. The results will provide guidelines on the level of details needed to analyse various dynamic phenomena in the AC system. The findings of the dynamic stability study will be benchmarked against an EMT implementation in the EnergyVille Real-Time Lab.

    Project title: Enhancement to SCADA/EMS for hybrid AC/DC networks

    To continue delievering solutions for accessing to real-time information, improving situational awareness and readily providing enhanced decision support for operators. The modified SCADA/EMS has to offer to the Transmission system operator security, openness, flexibility, expandability and performance.

    The objective of this work is to advance the requirement for the existing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) to integrate Wind/HVDC links. Thus it is expected to be modelled a hybrid DC and AC networks for both SCADA and EMS applications and thus to implement a state estimation tool for hybrid AC/DC.The work foreseen includes the setup of an HVDC grid controller and a module to interface with existing AC SCADA/EMS.
