Project overview:

DC Collection and Transmission for Offshore Wind Farms

Awardee:

GE Research

Started:

Q1, 2022

Technical Challenge Area:

Electrical Power Systems

Completed:

Q4, 2022

Synopsis:

GE Research seeks to identify the most practical DC collector design and MVDC/HVDC converter topology (lowest CAPEX and LCOE being driving metrics) to have an efficient, resilient, reliable and cost-effective collection and transmission system without the use of a DC circuit breaker.

Target Outcomes:

1
Perform a trade-off analysis and discuss reasons for the selection of the proposed MVDC-HVDC converter topology
2
Evaluate and discuss the future steps on design and validation of the down-selected system architecture and converter configuration
