Creating smarter, more resilient power networks requires the introduction of technologies that can efficiently and reliably transfer large amounts of power over long distances, can adapt to changing conditions, especially with the increasing variability with increasing use of renewable generation sources. This requires management of power flows, stabilizing of voltage and frequency, and making informed decisions in response to normal switching or fault events.
High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) brings intelligence into the power transmission systems which it interconnects, through its’ ability to accurately and quickly manage power flows between networks through a variety of control methods, and a range of additional automated response strategies to network events.
The webinar will introduce the main features of the latest ranges of thyristor-based and IGBT-based HVDC technologies available today, with descriptions of how they bring significant benefit to AC networks, and a look at how they will be used in the future.
About the Speaker:
Neil Kirby joined GE in 1982 in Stafford, England, and worked on the design of HVDC control systems hardware and software, system design, and overall project engineering, including extended periods of on-site commissioning work on HVDC installations around the world.
