This paper presents an overview of an ongoing Industrial Ph.D. project “Overvoltages and Protection in Offshore Wind Power Grids”, at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in cooperation with DONG Energy and Siemens Wind Power. The objective of this project is to improve the understanding and simulation models of the main electrical components in wind farms, based on available information, measurement data and simulation tools. The main aim of this project is to obtain validated models of wind turbine (WT) converters, WT transformers, submarine cables, vacuum circuit breakers, surge arresters, reactors and wind farm power transformers, and to develop a methodology on how to select appropriate equipment and protection system.
