Simulation of HVDC Cable Joints

Hiwi Stelle, Bachelorarbeit

In the context of the green energy transition, the interest in high voltage direct current (HVDC) cable systems is growing. Cable joints (see Fig. 1) are known to be

the most vulnerable part of these systems and must be designed carefully. In this

project, a HVDC cable joint is simulated and analyzed using commercial simulation

software (COMSOL) as well as the in-house simulation tool Pyrit. The main

focus of the project is a clear and appealing visualization of the results.
