Share HVDC - Planning, Modeling, and Economic Justification

Event Details

Participants will acquire an understanding of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) applications and related considerations including interaction with AC systems, modeling considerations, controls and economic project justification, (optional). A high-level understanding of HVDC technology, existing applications, market drivers and operational considerations will be discussed. Applications will consider both technical and economic drivers.

Completion of this course will allow attendees to be able to identify if HVDC may be appropriate for a given transmission system issue or development need. This course will also provide the background for attendees to appreciate and understand the issues brought about by a new or existing HVDC application that may influence the systems for which they are responsible. 

The course is intended for:

Individuals who work for developers, electric utilities and transmission system operating companies who are involved in the planning, engineering, specification, and operation of power transmission systems.

Duration:

2 days with an optional ½ day on HVDC economic modeling

Recommended prior knowledge:

Basic knowledge of electrical engineering and at least 5 years of professional experience in the power/energy industry
