14:30 - 16:00 Power conversion
Turbine technology  
Onshore      Offshore    

Room: Hall G1

The session focuses on conversion systems for wind turbines based on power electronics, mainly for off-shore applications. The trend of higher power brings several challenges related to compliance with grid requirements. Harmonics and resonances become crucial issues that require proper analysis and innovative yet practical solutions. This session covers aspects related to power converter architectures and the modulation and control of the converter. We will look at the interaction with the electrical grid as well as practical aspects about how to optimise the primary control in different wind conditions and how to effectively test the control of large-scale wind systems in emulated conditions.

Learning objectives

  • To explain a number of ways that the different power converter systems (including their filter) impact the real operation of an offshore wind park;
  • To identify the value of grid emulator test benches;
  • To list possible advantages of frequency converters in wind energy;
  • To explore methods that lead to reducing the cost reductions of integrating offshore wind energy.
