RWTH MMC Test Bench | Success Story

​OPAL-RT TECHNOLOGIES was very proud to collaborate with RWTH Aachen University, located in Western Germany, in one of the most ambitious and exciting engineering projects in Europe: PROMOTioN (PROgress on Meshed HVDC Offshore Transmission Networks). Started in 2015, the project encompasses 33 partners from 11 European countries, and aims to modernize the European electricity grid by developing meshed HDVC offshore grids based on cost-effective and reliable technological innovation.

OPAL-RT not only provided the modular multilevel converter (MMC) test benches to the Institute for High Voltage Equipment and Grids, Digitalization and Power Economics at RWTH University in Aachen, but also was closely involved in their integration and implementation.
