Abstract

This paper presents a state-of-the-art review on grid connection of large offshore wind power plants (OWPPs) using extra-long high voltage AC (HVAC) cables. The paper describes research by DONG Energy Wind Power in close collaboration with Aalborg University addressing related challenges through an industrial PhD project. The overall goal is to gain a better understanding of extra-long HVAC cable connected OWPPs, in order to ensure reliability and availability of OWPPs. This will reduce the cost of energy, as the risk of costly delays and modifications after the project has been commissioned can be reduced and operational availability and the reliability can be improved. Challenges hereto include lower resonance frequencies due to the long cables, frequency dependent modelling of long submarine cables, passive filtering, and PLL dynamics in the control loops (from a harmonic stability point of view).
