Beyond state-of-the-art technologies for re-powering ac corridors & multi-terminal hvdc systems

J. García-González M. Rivier Q. Zhao

September 2014 - September 2018

Funding entity Comisión Europea

Participated by Red Eléctrica de España, S.A.U, Elia Assets, S.A, 50Hertz Transmission GmbH, Terna Rete Italia, S.P.A, Nexans France, S.A.S, Iberdrola Renovables Energía, S.A, Reseau de Transport d´Electricité, S.A. (RTE), Statnett SF, Mavir Magyar Villamos Energia-Ipari Atviteli Rendszeriranyito Zartkorueen Mukodo RT, Energinet.DK, Siemens AG, Toshiba Transmission & Distribution Europe, Alstom Grid UK Limited, ABB AB, Nexnas Norway AS, Enertron, S.L, De Angeli Prodotti, S.R.L, Nexnas Deutschland GmbH, Columbus Superconductors, S.P.A

A group of eight transmission system operators with a generator company, manufacturers and research organizations, propose 5 demonstration projects to remove several barriers which prevent large-scale penetration of renewable electricity production in the European transmission network. The full large scale demonstrations led by industry aim at proving the benefits of novel technologies coupled with innovative system integration approaches: HVDC links , HVDC-VSC multi-terminal control , innovative components and architectures, AC overhead corridors, and DC superconducting links within an AC meshed network .The experimental results will be integrated into European impact analyses to show the scalability of the solutions.
