CIGRE Thesis Award 2020:


Roni Irnawan

Dr Roni Irnawan from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia has been awarded the CIGRE Thesis Award for his Ph.D. thesis “Planning and Control of Expandable Multi-terminal VSC-HVDC Transmission Systems”. His work can be seen as a strong contribution for the realisation of multi-terminal HVDC grids. Among several contributions, Roni proposes a methodology allowing a common operation of converters with different control designs and/or from different vendors, easing the expandability of HVDC grids.


The paper was peer-reviewed by the CIGRE Science & Engineering (CSE) editorial committee and will be published in CSE in 2020.
