Abstract

Projects with large offshore wind farms (up to 500 MW) are in progress. Connecting the parks to the power grid with conventional AC transmission technique is difficult due to non-controllable power flow and voltage stability problems. A new concept for connecting remotely located wind farms is suggested and described. The concept is based on combining superconducting DC power transmission and cooled power electronic.
