Ph.D. student defends Licentiate Thesis!

MultiDC member, PhD student of Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) Danilo Obradovic successfully defended his Licentiate thesis!   Danilo has shown big potential in improving frequency stability using an enhanced HVDC control. By synchronizing the control actions of several HVDC links, their droop based supplementary action relieves the work that primary frequency control (FCR-D)[…]

Articles from Ingeniøren

We are proud to announce that multiDC work was mentioned in Ingeniøren journal! 1. “Optimizing the market-clearing algorithm can save the Nordic electricity grid millions every year“ The proposal by multiDC is to include piece-wise HVDC loss factor and AC lines loss factors. The outcome would decrease the flows between zones with zero price difference[…]
