About this training

 

The training session gives practical and technical information on HVDC-VSC schemes and operations based on real projects. Simulation tools are used to illustrate concepts and performances of HVDC-VSC systems.

The session also includes some demo of a real-time simulation with physical HVDC control replicas.

This course is intended for engineers, researchers, operators and maintenance personnel, to provide up-to-date technical expertise for HVDC-VSC projects.

When? 5 Days from 25 to 29 May 2020
How much? 3,000€
For who? Engineers, researchers, operators and maintenance personnel
How? In English

What you will learn

  • Basics on HVDC – VSC technology for transmission grids
  • HVDC VSC Control and Protection
  • Studies with HVDC VSC systems
  • HVDC VSC Project Management

He is now a national expert at RTE in the National Center for Grid Expertise, on the Operation & Maintenance of the French HVDC and SVC systems.

Martin Henriksen

Martin Henriksen

R&D Program Director - HVDC Cable Systems at SuperGrid Institute

Martin Henriksen graduated in 1995 with a M.Sc.E.E. in High Voltage Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark. He worked for the Danish utility DONG for 3 years in modeling and operation planning of transmission systems, before joining NKT Cables in 1999 where he was responsible for qualification tests on high voltage underground and submarine cables up to 450kV.

In 2002, Martin joined the Nexans High Voltage group in Paris, France heading the bidding team working for high voltage underground project worldwide before taking the position of Director of Tendering and System Engineering in 2011. Under his management, the plant has been fully qualified for cable systems up to 550kV and has successfully supplied cable project from 66kV to 550kV in USA and abroad.

Since 2018 Martin holds the position as Director of HVDC Systems R&D at SuperGrid Institute, where he manage research program covering development of materials for HVDC equipment, cable monitoring and diagnostic and subsea equipment.
