Anubhav Jain attended the EERA JP Wind & SETWind online event 2020, in collaboration with ETIPWind and was delighted to win 1st prize in the poster challenge for his poster Blackstart & Islanding Capabilities of HVDC connected Offshore wind power plants. He presented the motivation for enabling wind turbines with blackstart & islanding capabilities – from both the power system operator and wind-farm developer’s perspective. He identified the different ‘target states’ of the energisation sequence of HVDC connected offshore wind-farms in onshore grid restoration, along with each stage’s main technical challenges. His findings propose control solutions to tackle these challenges, and are included in papers published over the previous 2.5 years.
EERA JP stands for European Energy Research Alliance joint Programme; SETWind for Strategic Energy Technology, Wind; and ETIPWind for European Technology & Innovation Platform on Wind Energy.
