I commenced my E.S. Cornwall Memorial Scholarship in July 2018 (previous updates can be found here). This fifth report provides an overview of my learnings during my time at Siemens AG (Siemens), and impressions made, from July to September 2019. I have been embedded in the HVDC Sales team, learning about current and past HVDC solutions and refurbishments around the world. In addition, I have led a project to develop a process for preparing modeling and connection information required to connect generation systems (including HVDC interconnections) in the National Electricity Market (NEM). This report outlines what I have learnt about Siemens’ HVDC technology and how Siemens will prepare modeling information for the NEM connection process.
I look forward to receiving feedback on my report.
