Wind energy Integration by DC Network
WINPOWER project aims at developing a wide control strategy to manage large scale High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) multi-terminal networks that will interconnect renewable energy sources (RES) to the main power network. Proposed work deals with control strategies in a wide sense, from off-line optimization of network itself before its construction; to real time, multi-layered, decentralized stabilizing control that is embedded into its components. This DC grid will allow for multi-RES generators efficient interconnection, for example off-shore Wind Farms and solar plants. This DC grid will also manage their connection to: the main AC grid; large loads (big cities or industrial facilities); other DC grids like a future European SuperGrid.
