 ONGOING 
In order to unlock the full potential of Europe’s offshore resources, network infrastructure is urgently required, linking off-shore wind parks and on-shore grids in different countries. HVDC technology is envisaged but the deployment of meshed HVDC offshore grids is currently hindered by the high cost of converter technology, lack of experience with protection systems and fault clearance componen ...

EERA Design Tools for Offshore Wind Farm Cluster (EERA-DTOC)

Start date: 01 Jan 2012, End date: 30 Jun 2015,

The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) together with some high-impact industry partners addresses the call proposing an integrated and validated design tool combining the state-of-the-art wake, yield and electrical models available in the consortium, as a plug-in architecture with possibility for third party models. To decrease uncertainties around wind farm wake predictions, a small measur ...
