The course starts with an introduction to why HVDC is increasingly applied in power systems. HVDC LCC technology and its main applications are explained, including the controls and associated DC and AC equipment. A substation day is followed by VSC technology with a control system module for VSC and associated AC and equipment specification, including commissioning and failure investigations. The equipment technology session leads on to the case study workshop focusing on a practical project example. Coming immediately after our HVDC converter training, this technologies course completes the overview HVDC systems.
By attending this course, you will gain in-depth understanding of the various building blocks, types of HVDC technologies, their typical applications and the methods that can be used to ensure the quality of your HVDC projects. You will understand how HVDC converter stations are specified and designed and which developments can be expected in the future.
The course is intended for employees of TSO's, engineering and construction companies and manufacturers, but may also be of interest to wind project developers, consultants, managers or others who require knowledge about the building blocks of HVDC. A background in electrical power engineering is required.
