Prior to the CM project being commissioned, additional functionality was added to the scheme. The Replicas enabled this functionality to be fully tested at the HVDC Centre without delaying the commissioning of the scheme.
The HVDC Centre supported the commission of the CM Project through:
- Pre-running commissioning tests on the Replicas to show the results that should be anticipated;
- Reviewing (on a daily basis) the outputs of the on-site commissioning tests, to provide in-depth analysis; and
- Analysing and diagnosing faults and/or events that occur during commission.
