Summary

The call is intended to support all the preparatory phases among all stakeholders (HVDC systems manufacturers, TSOs, wind turbine manufacturers and windfarm developers) leading to a demonstration project to de-risk the technology to enable the installation in Europe of the first Multi-Vendor Multi-Terminal HVDC system with Grid Forming Capability.

Detailed Call Description

The supports all the multiple preparatory tasks, which will lead to a global agreement among stakeholders and define the detailed planning for the full-scale industrial demonstrator. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Coordination and organization of a platform involving all stakeholders (HVDC system manufacturers, TSOs, third-party HVDC system integrators, wind turbine manufacturers, offshore wind farm developers).
  • Compatibility of modelling tools towards interoperability.
  • Model sharing between TSOs: legal framework.
  • Roles and responsibilities on interoperability issues.
