Course Content

The main goal of offshore wind farms is to generate electricity. Understanding this process is important for engineers and professionals working in this field. This two-day course provides an overview of both the onshore transmission network as well as offshore power networks and components. Furthermore, it serves as an introduction to the electrical physics principles behind this topic. Theoretical lectures will provide knowledge about each aspect of this sector covering the design, installation, operation and innovation regarding offshore power networks. Following these lectures, enhancing cases will challenge participants to put the newly gained knowledge into practice.


The ‘Offshore Power Networks’ training course and its materials are written and given entirely in English. However, it will be possible to give the lectures in Dutch if all the participants are Dutch.

Learning Objectives

  • Acquiring knowledge of the design, installation and operation of offshore power networks.
  • Obtaining an overview of the components in offshore power networks and comprehending how they function
  • Understanding the key issues in offshore power transmission networks (i.e. transmission losses, reactive power, high voltage alternating current/high voltage direct current and failures.)

Target Audience

Academics and engineers with experience in the offshore energy sector. For example, engineers moving into the design, installation or operation of offshore wind farms, offshore wind farm collection networks or offshore transmission networks but also financial and legal professionals working with offshore power networks.


This training course will be given several times in 2021. The list below shows the dates and the corresponding format in which they are scheduled.

  • 4 & 5 November two full day hybrid sessions

Hybrid sessions

Until further notice all training courses will be given in either online or hybrid format. Both hybrid and online training courses consist of live-streaming sessions with continuous interaction between the teachers and all participants. The difference between these formats is that during hybrid sessions a small number of participants can attend physically in our building in Delft, while others attend simultaneously via live-streaming. The content of the lectures and cases during a hybrid session is equal for both physical and online participants. All participants receive a DOB-box beforehand containing all materials required for both online and physical participation.

The maximum number of participants allowed at our training courses will depend on the Dutch COVID-19 regulations and may vary over time. Allotting the available physical seats will be done based on the ‘first come first served’ principle.

If necessary, or if we deem fit, we can and will switch from hybrid to online format to safeguard the health of our clients and colleagues. This implies that also the physical participants will have to attend via the live-streaming session online. We do not advise to wait for a next session to attend physically, as we cannot guarantee safe participation at our building months or even weeks ahead of time. DOB-Academy reserves the right to switch from a hybrid to an online format up to 24 hours before the start of the training course.

Registration closes a week before the training course in order to send all training materials on time.
