The control replicas of the IFA 2000 and ELECLINK HVDC interconnections have been installed
As part of the relocation of the HVDC Square Real-Time Lab, the control replicas of the IFA 2000 and ELECLINK HVDC interconnections have been delivered and installed in their new location.
This lab, which is the largest Multivendor Real Time Simulation Lab in Europe and part of the French National Network Expertise Department, is being relocated from Paris to Jonage (Lyon area), allowing for collaboration with the training department of RTE (the French Transmission System Operator) and the RTE Information Technologies and Digital Services Department.
The partnership that will result from the collaboration of these three departments will benefit both French and international projects in HVDC capabilities, which reflects the group’s growing HVDC activity. HVDC Square capitalizes on this strong and growing expertise to offer training sessions and power system studies for our clients based across all continents.
“Our real-time simulation facility will host HVDC/FACTS control replicas, which allows for simulations to be implemented accurately and in a safe environment to improve and approve control systems before rolling them out in the field.
The installation of the IFA 2000 and ELECLINK HVDC control replicas will allow the realization of the interaction studies to continue between these two systems that will be operated in parallel, both linking the French and UK’s transmission systems.“
