2nd quarterly report – offshore wind farm transmission connections

My second quarter on the ES Cornwall Scholarship has provided valuable insight into:
1) the design of offshore transmission networks and generation arrays,
2) the market arrangements which exist in Great Britain, and
3) the impact of significant embedded renewable generation in sub-transmission networks.

It covers the period from mid April to the end of July, the second half of my tenure with Senergy Econnect in their
Power Systems Analysis team.

My experiences have been documented in this 2nd Quarterly Report (PDF).

During this period I am grateful to have been able to attend the Cigre B4 Colloquium on recent advances and future applications of HVDC technology.

My impressions from this conference are documented in report appended to my 2nd quarterly report.
