Substation Design

12:40 pm - 1:10 pm Keynote | Engineering and design patterns: Evaluation of design approach harmonization/standards versus tailor-made solutions Keynote | Engineering and design patterns: Evaluation of design approach harmonization

Thomas Bleikamp - Package Manager OSS/Grid/Scada; Offshore Wind Park Kaskasi, Innogy SE
  • Why it does make sense to deep dive into the question if harmonization/ standardization or tailor-made designs for Offshore Substations shall be applied w.r.t. costs and risks
  • The utilization of selected standards included in a mainly tailormade design will be considered
  • Cost reduction by using 66kV wind turbine grid voltage and the result after feasibility study for Kaskasi at Innogy
