High Voltage Direct Current Transmission

Converters, Systems and DC Grids

The development, installation and penetration of large scale renewable generation such as off-shore wind farms or solar installations is one of the drivers in the increased interest in high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission. Considering the fact that both off-shore or other large wind farms or solar installations are located far away from the major load centers, while at the same time the existing transmission systems are not designed to integrate the renewable generation, many utilities around the world are looking at taking advantage of the benefits that HVDC transmission can offer in the development of the Super Grids of the future.
