The Power Systems project was devoted to the modeling and simulation of complete subsea power supply systems.
This was achieved by the following activities:
- Providing accurate modeling of system components, including cables and converters
- Validating models by measurements
- Conducing system studies to verify safe operation
- Evaluating new system concepts
Objectives and sub-tasks
Establish a national competence centre on design, analysis, verification and safe operation of electric power supply systems for subsea control, processing and transportation systems for oil and gas exploitation.
- Describe technical obstacles, requirements and possibilities related to systems for transmission of power and signals. Survey of current concepts for transmission and infield distribution systems
- Develop competence on methods and tools for design and verification of complete subsea power systems, including ability to avoid undesired phenomena.
- Provide necessary new simulation models for wideband simulation of (umbilical) cables and transformers, including validation of such models
- Demonstrate new solutions for powering subsea processing, flow assurance and control systems
- Provide guidelines for design and qualification of system solutions, and support for upgrading of IEC/ISO specifications
- Accomplish a Ph.D. degree
