HVDC Technologies for Meshed HVDC Grids: New KEMA Labs webinar on December 2nd
15 . Nov . 2021

HVDC Technologies for Meshed HVDC Grids, the new and free of charge KEMA Labs webinar, will take place on December 2nd, at 10am (CET).

HVDC offers technically as well as economically viable alternative for integration massive remote located renewable energy sources such as offshore wind farms. With the plan to integrate enormous amount of renewable energy to meet climate targets, meshed offshore HVDC is inevitable for increased reliability, security of supply and optimized use of resources.

Therefore, this webinar will focus on the requirements and testing of a few critical, recently developed components crucial for the realization of a mashed HVDC grid. These components include HVDC switchgear including HVDC circuit breakers and HVDC GIS, HVDC cables together with their accessories, etc. Furthermore, the webinar will highlight the latest developments and trends, performance verification and testing, existing gaps in the technical specifications, new non-standard stresses especially various categories of over-voltages, and ongoing standardization activities.

KEMA Labs experts Nadew Belda (Innovation Engineer) and Heiko Jahn (Projects Coordinator Central Europe), together with Tanumay Karmokar (Asset Engineer DC Cables, TenneT), will discuss offshore HVDC grid developments and current trends with focus on HVDC switchgear, new development trends of the offshore HVDC connection, challenges and gaps towards meshed HVDC grid development, non-standardized special stresses identified as new requirements for HVDC cable testing, and the actual testing of HVDC cables together with its accessories.
