VSC Transmission

This Brochure describes VSC Transmission technology, i.e. HVDC transmission using Voltage Sourced Converters. A comparison with Line Commutated HVDC technology is provided. The WG found no technical reason why this technology could not be used at high voltage and power, and concluded that such development would depend solely on the perceived commercial return on the R&D investment.
