START-UP OF AN OFFSHORE WIND POWER PLANT WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF AN EXTERNAL POWER GRID
Researchers from the Universitat Jaume I and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a technological procedure that allows an offshore wind power plant to be black started, that is, to start up the plant without the support of an external power grid. Until now, this service, which is essential for restoring an electrical system in the event of a shutdown, has only been provided by conventional thermal or hydroelectric power stations. However, with the reduction in the number of conventional plants and the increase in renewable energy plants, such as solar or wind power, these latter need to be able to restore the electricity system to operation in the event of a shutdown.
