InnoDC (Innovative tools for offshore wind and direct current (DC) grids) is training 15 PhD student researchers in the exciting field of renewable energy and DC grids. Europe’s power system has changed significantly in recent decades, notably in the development of renewable energy. More changes are essential to contribute to the United Nations’ climate goals. InnoDC’s research focuses on models and methods to integrate new technology (eg offshore wind turbines, VSC HVDC converters and long AC cables) into the power-system.
The result will be highly skilled engineers capable of converting their new knowledge of offshore wind power and DC grids into future products and services.
InnoDC is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research & innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 765585.
