1010603 HVDC Transmission Systems and FACTS Devices
Introduction High voltage direct current (HVDC) technology has proved to be more economical and efficient for bulk power transmission than ac for overhead distances exceeding a break-even distance of 300 to 350 km. The break-even distance, where the extra cost of terminal equipment and losses balances the reduced capital investment in the line itself, is considerably shorter for submarine cables. Moreover, HVDC systems have some operational advantages over ac systems such as stability with no loss of synchronism, power flow control, as well as allowing asynchronous in…
