About this event

Building an offshore wind farm presents many engineering challenges, not least how to take variable, asynchronous frequencies and power levels and feed into the National Grid.

This talk outlines the construction challenges of the Rampion wind farm, but concentrates on the turbine control systems, the mechanisms used to synchronise power, voltage and phase across multiple turbines and the transmission of power into the grid.

Speaker

Speaker from Rampion Offshore Wind, E.ON UK plc
