HVDC VSC Technologies training course (online)

HVDC training course

Modular training course providing knowledge and understanding of High Voltage Direct Current technology.

Most electrical power transmission involves a 3-phase HVAC system. The reasons for choosing HVDC particularly HVDC VSC rather than HVAC in a specific case are very complex. Through this modular of HVDC VSC training course, DNV responds to the need for more knowledge and understanding regarding this subject.

The first part starts with an introduction to HVDC technology, including an overview on the classic LCC-HVDC and why HVDC VSC is increasingly applied in power systems.  HVDC VSC technology and its applications are explained, followed by system and equipment aspects based on practical project examples.  The second part starts with HVDC VSC control principals, including typical system simulation studies and test requirements at various phase through the life-cycle of HVDC systems,  followed by HVDC grid development and interoperability topics.  Coming immediately after our training, this technology course completes the overview of HVDC VSC systems.

Subjects:

  • Introduction to HVDC (including an overview on LCC and VSC) 
  • Basic of HVDC VSC technology and its applications 
  • Primary equipment and System aspects of HVDC VSC system 
  • HVDC grid development and Interoperability 

Result:
After this course participants have gained in-depth understanding of the various building blocks, types of HVDC technologies and their typical applications and the critical aspects to ensure the quality of your HVDC projects. You will understand how HVDC converter stations are specified and designed and which developments can be expected in the future. 

Target Audience:
The course is intended for employees of TSO's, engineering and construction companies and manufacturers, but can also be of interest to wind project developers, consultants, managers or others who require knowledge about the building blocks of HVDC. A background in electrical power engineering is required.
