Title : Advanced power electronics for cable connection of offshore wind

  title={Title : Advanced power electronics for cable connection of offshore wind},
  author={E. K. Nielsen},
Several offshore wind farms are planned in a number of locations in Northern Europe. The introduction of offshore wind power brings the wind power into a new era, characterized by larger size of the farms, 200 – 1000 MW are planned, and increasing distances from the grid. Cable transmission is the only solution for the transmission from the farm to the shore. Often land cables are also required to reach a sufficiently strong interconnection point in the grid. Together this gives transmission… Expand
