Demo 2 Special Workshop – Maximising multivendor interoperability in HVDC systems

Paris, France

This 4th Special Workshop of the EU funded Best Paths project showed the results of Demo 2, which aims to assess and maximise interoperability for multivendor HVDC systems based on Voltage Source Converters (VSC) technology.


During the workshop, participants saw live demonstrations as well as presentations of the methodology and final results of this work, which is the first attempt to perform systematic investigation on multivendor VSC interoperability with world-leading HVDC manufacturers, using offline and real-time simulation.
