Identification: “Control Strategies of a DC Based Offshore Wind Farm With Series Connected Collection Grid”


  • Propose control strategy for a new topology of off shore wind farms
  • Build a laboratory test bench for testing the control
  • Main characteristics of the test bench:
    • Vdc = 400V ; Vg = 220V at 50Hz ; Prated = 5kW
    • Central coordination of wind turbine emulation
    • Use of DC cable
Experimental Test Bench

Period: from October 2016 to December 2017

Sponsors: The Nord Pas de Calais’ Council, the French State, European Union

Context: HVDC to HVAC Conversion ; Offshore wind farms; HVDC transmission

Main results:

  • Development and verification of an innovative control strategy
  • Use of real time simulation for the power converter control
  • Experimental results of a small scale wind farm
