PROMOTioN SEEKS TO DEVELOP MESHED HVDC OFFSHORE GRIDS ON THE BASIS OF COST-EFFECTIVE AND RELIABLE TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

PROMOTioN is the link between technology research, validation (testing) and development of proposals/recommendation for meshed offshore grids.

PROMOTioN identifies technical requirements and investigate possible topologies for meshed HVAC/DC offshore grids.

PROMOTioN develops recommendations for a coherent EU and national regulatory framework regarding DC offshore grids.

Successful test of Black Start capability

In recent years, with increasing penetration of wind power in the electrical network, and the corresponding reduction of conventional generation plant, there is interest from TSO’s in procuring black start services from wind power plants.

Demonstration of protection of multi-terminal HVDC grids

One of the challenges for developing the DC multi-terminal grids of the future, is how to protect the system in the event of a fault, so that only the faulty components are isolated rather than having to isolate the whole DC grid.
