R&D NESTER PUBLISHES SCIENTIFIC PAPER IN JOURNAL OF MARINE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

 

R&D NESTER team involved in the project ARCWIND published a scientific paper named "Fostering Offshore Wind Integration in Europe through Grid Connection Impact Assessment" in the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering.

This paper aims to contribute to an eventual future integration of floating wind energy in continental power systems in Europe, by calculating the capacity that these networks have to absorb new energy sources. Additionally, the impact in the network is also measured trough the calculation of the contribution that these connections could have in short circuit current levels near the chosen point of connection.

This analysis was performed for six regions from five European countries (Portugal, Spain, France, United Kingdom and Ireland), all considered in the scope of ARCWIND. The results presented in this paper are related to the research activities performed by R&D NESTER in this project, whose main objective was to study the impact that these possible new sources of power could have in existing power system at country level.

The ARCWIND project, financed by INTERREG Atlantic Area, aims to contribute to the development of floating wind solutions. Different areas of knowledge are addressed, including the analysis of potential of wind resource, design and testing of prototypes of floating wind platforms, network impact and economic viability studies.

The published paper has free access and is available at https://www.mdpi.com/2077-1312/10/4/463
