Shaping the power grid with HVDC solutions


      Shaping the power grid with HVDC solutions changes that are taking place in the power grids will require the highest possible degree of flexibility and safety in the future. And that's exactly what Siemens' DC solutions provide. High-voltage direct current transmission systems can stabilize power grids and efficiently transmit high amounts of electric power. The compact design of the Siemens HVDC PLUS offers a space-saving solution for the converter stations e.g. in megacities or for grid access of remote offshore wind farms. Excellent performance is provided with HVDC PLUS in Full Bridge topology allowing selective fault clearing on DC overhead lines. Innovations like the DC Compact Switchgear (DC CS) enable radial multi-terminal systems, an important step forward to the future Supergrid.nMore information:
