The HVDC-WISE project overall objective is to propose, analyse, design, and validate HVDC-based grid architecture concepts that enable the deployment of reliable and resilient widespread AC/DC transmission grids to achieve the European energy transition. The HVDC-WISE project aims to:

a) Propose a set of innovative HVDC-based grid architecture concepts (technological solutions) to harness the full potential of HVDC to increase the R&R of the AC/DC system and reduce the associated threats of HVDC systems, while providing transmission capacity.

b) Provide the necessary tools and methodologies to analyse the R&R levels of future AC/DC systems integrating the different HVDC-based grid architecture concepts enabling their selection and design.

c) Validate the proposed HVDC-based grid architecture concepts (using the provided tools) implemented on three complementary realistic use cases representing different grid situations in Europe.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101075424
