Roni’s 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.
Roni is only the 2nd person to win this award. Roni was a PhD at the Modern Power Transmission Systems research group working on the COBRAcable research project and he is now a lecturer at Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia.
