The German demo-site is based on available infrastructure and converter technologies developed in previous projects. It provides a modular design, easily reconfigurable to test different network architectures. The goal in HYPERIDE is to demonstrate different hybrid AC-DC architectures to increase the technology readiness level of key enabling technologies and systems.

Key Facts

Interconnection of
