FROM POWER PLANTS TO ELECTRICAL SUBSTATIONS
Power Grid - HVDC Electric Transmission
Effective cooling is an important task to make full use of the converter station and to improve the reliability of the system.
High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems enable utilities to move more power further, efficiently integrate renewables, interconnect grids, and improve network performance.
HVDC systems utilize power electronics technology to convert AC and DC voltage and are ideal for supporting existing systems or building new power highways.
The HVDC technology transmits the electricity at higher voltages over long distances to reduce the energy loss and then switch to lower voltages at the receiving station for further transmission or distribution.
High-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology offers several advantages compared to alternating current transmission systems. For example, it allows more efficient bulk power transfer over long distances.
Once installed, HVDC transmission systems are an integral part of the electrical power system, improving stability, reliability, and transmission capacity.
- Every HVDC solution is tailored and designed based on a project-by-project assessment of the customers’ individual requirements, whether it’s for connecting offshore wind generation, long distance power transmission, or energy trading between independent networks.
- One of the major components in a converter station are converter transformers
- Converter transformer’s main task is to link the AC grid with the converter valves.
