About the thesis

• Summary department information: Vattenfall´s Research and Development portfolio Wind is providing products and services for the next wind farm generation. The portfolio is looking for students eager to execute a wind farm related M.Sc. thesis project.

• Thesis subject / assignment – The selection between HVAC and HVDC transmission system in the design of offshore wind farms has a significant impact on the business profitability. Economical and technical studies have been done in the past when offshore wind farms received subsidies and the HVDC equipment cost was very high. Now the financing schemes are tightened as well as equipment costs for offshore wind farms are lower. A review and re-visit of the calculation is necessary for increasing the profitability.

• The goal is to identify the technical and economical key parameters that impact in the decisions between HVAC and HVDC transmission system alternatives. This identification will be supported by using the EeFarm tool which calculates the Levelized Cost Of Energy (LCOE) and Net Present Value (NPE) of the defined system.

• This assignment is for 1 or 2 students
