Anubhav Jain conducted his first secondment at CG Holdings Belgium NV – Systems Division in spring / summer 2019. CG’s expertise is in design, engineering, substation commission & maintenance, transformers, switchgear and transmission lines.
His main aim was to obtain ‘hard-to-find-in-literature’ answers to questions regarding practical aspects of the energisation sequence of HVDC-connected offshore wind power plants (WPPs). Such answers would enable him to refine his models and improve validated simulation results.
The knowledge he gained developed his understanding of existing challenges and feasible solutions, which helped him model the system more accurately, simplify certain aspects, and obtain additional factors for his Phd.
He was grateful to his CG supervisor, Kristof Van Brusselen for ensuring a smooth transition and a comfortable stay at CG, as well as Christoph Wijsen and Phong Nguyen for taking time to answer his questions on WPP blackstart & islanding capabilities. And he appreciated Stephen Hardy‘s company for their interesting & fun discussions, and help whenever he needed it.
