Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO133: Application of a digital substation technology to offshore wind farms. A step towards the future.

Alexander Tsylin, Lead Protection Specialist, Ørsted


Offshore wind industry is growing rapidly as many countries have committed to use this affordable renewable energy source to lower greenhouse gas emissions, tackle global climate change and ultimately achieve net zero carbon targets. Massive deployment of large-scale offshore wind farms (OWF) around the globe requires application of innovative solutions to optimize design, accelerate project execution schedules and safely achieve first power dates as well as improve availability, reliability and monitoring capabilities for the assets in operation and increase key indicators for Quality Heath Safety and Environment (QHSE). Application of a digital substation technology to OWFs opens prospects for harvesting the above-mentioned benefits given that all the specific aspects of such projects are properly considered. Shift from conventional towards digital substation design implies digitalization of the analogue and binary hardwire interfaces between primary system (high-voltage equipment) and secondary system (protection, control, metering, SCADA, other low-voltage systems) as well as interfaces within secondary systems based on IEC61850 collection of standards. To successfully implement the digital substation technology in OWFs and ensure future-proof solutions a joint effort is required from all the industry players such as wind farm developers, regulatory authorities, and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM).
