Sixth International Workshop on Large-Scale Integration of Wind Power and Transmission Networks for Offshore Wind Farms in Delft
Langen/Delft/Stockholm, September 12th, 2006 - From October 26th to 28th, 2006, Delft University of Technology will host an International Workshop on Large-Scale Integration of Wind Power and Transmission Networks for Offshore Wind Farms organised by the German energy consulting company Energynautics in cooperation with the Technical University Delft, Netherlands, and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden.
The sixth edition of this workshop again focuses primarily on the technical aspects of the large-scale integration of wind power and transmission networks for offshore wind farms. The workshop has developed into the premier workshop in its field in Europe, a regular forum to exchange knowledge and ideas and share experiences. Previous venues were Stockholm (Sweden), Billund (Denmark) and Glasgow (Scotland), host of the 5th workshop in April 2005 with 180 participants from 18 countries and 5 continents.
The workshop offers participants from leading international research facilities as well as the wind energy and power transmission industries a platform for discussing technical and economic aspects of the large-scale integration of wind power and for presenting results from ongoing research. The 50 presentations from speakers from 15 countries focus on current experience regarding the system integration of wind power, recent advances in grid connection technologies, power management systems for offshore wind farms, production forecast and control systems for wind power as well as on regulations and standards for the grid connection. The workshop intends to stimulate interdisciplinary thinking among the wind energy industry, transmission/distribution network operators and research facilities in order to identify topics for further research.
This year’s workshop includes a field trip to the 108 MW Egmond aan Zee offshore wind farm that is currently nearing completion. On this special trip, participants will be able to see the latest offshore wind power technology.
The preliminary program and the registration details are available at our workshop homepage: http://www.offshoreworkshop.org/.
Shortly after the 6th Workshop, the European Wind Energy Association will organise the Large Scale Integration of Wind Energy Conference in Brussels on 7-8 November 2006, see http://www.ewea.org/integration. The conference primarily addresses policy and business aspects of the large-scale integration of wind power in Europe. Both events complement each other. A technical overview and conclusions of the Delft workshop will be presented in Brussels.
