06: Offshore Electrical BoP and Transmission

Offshore wind online training course

In this course you will learn the technical aspects of offshore wind transmission and grid interconnection

What you will learn:

Transmission and cabling are essential parts of the offshore wind project. In this course you will learn the technical aspects of offshore wind transmission and grid interconnection, the transmission strategies that are currently followed, and the challenges associated with them. We will also explore the technical approaches for building offshore transmission lines, including transmission system components and design factors. Then we will have an overview on the submarine cables their characteristics, how a cable route is selected, and how to protect cables from external damage. Further, the course will explore the cable burial methods and the trending technologies associated with cable installation.

Who should attend?

  • Renewable energy professionals who tangentially are involved in grid planning, but need a broad picture of what it takes, both from the logistics standpoint and physical works, to connect and offshore wind farm to a point of interconnect
  • Individuals who would like a detailed understanding of the equipment used by offshore wind farms to generate electricity and transmit that electricity from offshore to a point of interconnection onshore
  • Government employees who would like a better understanding of grid integration processes and challenges

Lead Instructor:

Mohsen Zadeh, Senior Electrical Engineer

Mohsen Zadeh is currently working as a senior electrical engineer in the Renewable Advisory group of DNV GL based in Toronto, ON. Mr. Zadeh has extensive professional experience including power electrical system studies and HV/MV cables and substation design of utility-scale renewable energy projects including onshore and offshore wind projects across North America. He has recently been extensively involved on a number of offshore wind electrical transmission preliminary design projects in North America ranging from shallow waters of the east coast to floating and deep waters of the west coast.  Mr. Zadeh holds a Master of Engineering Science in power systems from University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada, is a member of AWEA, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE), as well as a Registered Professional Engineer in the provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta Canada, as well as US state of Nevada.
