    Abstract

    Wind energy will continue to grow in Europe by means of the continent¿s climate and energy policies. As a result, more wind turbines will be progressively installed offshore. In addition, future offshore wind farms have a tendency to be larger in size and installed increasingly away from shore. Hence, the development of large offshore multi-terminal DC (MTDC) networks seems to be one of the best ways of integrating and sharing large amounts of offshore wind power between several European countries. This paper introduces how the correct choice for transnational grids architecture can impact its development and performance, and how modularity can help overcome problems related with the intrinsic complexity of such systems. Subsequently, modular dynamic models of the most important subsystems inside a MTDC network are presented and, after derivation of the models, a case study is carried out to assess the overall system behavior and performance.
