Meshed HVDC transmission in the content of sustainable power transmission for the future and its environmental impact
When talking about future power systems, power transmissions cannot be omitted. While it makes sense to generate RE where the potential is highest, it often means that volatile RE has to be transmitted over long distances. HVDC is favored for modern transmission to reinforce AC transmission. Around the world, HVDC is discussed and implemented in grid expansion plans. These plans range from point-to-point links towards meshed grids. This paper explores these grids and their ability to transmit RE in bulk and over long distances. It is shown to prevent massive AC grid expansion, and therefore positively impact the environment.
