wind turbines ancillary services grid connection wind farms
Project description

This research project focuses on the grid connection of offshore wind turbines. The first goal is to determine the optimal connection technology with the main land (AC or DC). The second objective is to investigate the provision of ancillary services with wind turbines. The third goal is to determine the optimal interconnection of wind turbines whitin a wind farm.
