IPST - International Conference on Power Systems Transients

IPST - International Conference on Power Systems Transients

Today, I checked out the International Conference on Power Systems Transient in Perpignan, France. It offers a platform for the exchange of scientific and technical information related to electromagnetic transients in electric power systems. All topics related to the study of transient phenomena in electric energy systems will be dealt with. This includes digital computer simulations, transient network analyzer studies, and field measurements.
The IPST is a biennial event, the 2019 session was in Palais des Congrès in Perpignan, France.

The study of electromagnetic transients becomes more and more popular as renewable energies and AC/DC converters are spreading across electrical networks. This quick evolution of transport systems requires accurate simulation tools in order to evaluate performances of tomorrow's smart grids.

This is why RTE, the French Transmission System Operator is very pleased to host the IPST 2019 conference in Perpignan. 10km away from the venue, the Baixas HVDC substation is connecting French and Spanish transmission grids with HVDC VSC technology. It is, the highest rated VSC link in the world at 2 x 1,000 MW at +/- 320 kV DC.
My photos show impressions from the Spanish substation, at Santa Llogaia, which I passed in the morning, June 19. More to come.

My MAZDA with Spanish number-plate in front of the entrance of the Santa Llogaia (Spain) 320 kV DC substation.
It brings dirty French Nuclear electricity to Spain.
When I pressed the door-bell at the gate, a recorded voice said repeatedly:
"This emergency phone is out of order!"
And nothing happened.
Good, that I am/was not a terrorist.
I could have blown up the thing in a few minutes.

At least, this bird has something good at the Santa Llogaia (Spain) 320 kV DC substation. It can warm its feet on the conversion losses and has always a nice 50 Hz hum in its ears, at least at the AC-side...

That is the entrance of the Spanish side in Santa Llogaia of the 2 x 1,000 MW DC double underground connecting link between France and Spain.
I wonder, why the European Commission is co-funding this 700 M€ project. With paying our electricity bills, all cost to maintain, service and update the grids ARE INCLUDED. Just read the small-printed.

Some people may like these views. I do it not. As they simply show, that "our" (???) electricity infrastructure has NOT changed much from its invention by people like Edison, Westinghouse, Tesla, and Siemens...
