HYPERRIDE will demonstrate potential solutions which are seen in AC-DC hybrid grids for LV and MV infrastructures. Combing DC and AC technologies to form a hybrid AC-DC grid is a promising way as most power electronics applications use internal DC power supplies.
With raising components and system maturity new use case with wider scope can be implemented and validated via pilot sites.
HYPERIDE addresses these new cases and will provide clear recommendations for distribution grid applications and will utilize the technologies and concepts of the rather very local or isolated state of the art DC applications. Potential transition paths to proposed future (large-scale) distributed industrial or DSO grids will be defined and demonstrated as outlined in the workplan.
