PROMOTioN HVDC Technical Panel @ 2018 CIGRE Paris

In order to accommodate the growth of renewable energy sources into the market, HVDC with its ability to carry bulk power over long distances and its dynamic controllability is one of key technologies to enable the transition to a greener and smarter energy sector. The development of Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) based on HVDC gives full control over active and reactive power, allowing connection to offshore wind or weak networks. The fixed voltage polarity also allows converters to be readily connected in parallel, making multi-terminal networks feasible. This facilitates the development of meshed DC networks, rather than a number of point-topoint links.
