This paper introduces the concepts of platformless DC connections of offshore wind turbines. First, the paper describes the possible and preferred wind turbine drivetrain arrangements capable of producing sufficiently high DC voltage. Then, the electrical system designs appropriate for the platformless DC architectures are discussed. After that, the potential economic benefits of direct DC connections of offshore wind turbines are analyzed, showing significant CapEX reduction up to 20-25% when…
