Presentación de tesis doctoral al IIT Quanyu Zhao 25/09/2018: Technical and Economic Impact of the deployment of a VSC-MTDC SUPERGRID with Large-Scale Penetration of Offshore Wind
De Maria Isabel Sanchez Ortega A octubre 03, 2018
Providing low-carbon power across Europe relies on a strongly integrated and liquid energy market, supported by upgraded and new trans-national transmission networks. This calls attention to VSC HVDC systems in the vision of developing a future Supergrid, as well as research eﬀort in order to fully understand all aspects related to the hybrid AC/DC grids.
In this thesis, different perspectives of hybrid AC/DC systems have been addressed: 1) two OPF models have been developed to incorporate DC networks with consideration of all system losses; 2) a techno-economic assessment has been carried out on a detailed pan-European network intaking large integration of offshore wind from North Sea; 3) barriers that impede the development towards the Supergrid are identified and carefully examined.
