Impacts of HVDC lines on the economics of HVDC projects

The study considers the overall HVDC system economics, capital (lines and stations), losses, operation and maintenance. The most economically favorable voltages and conductor configurations are studied for several HVDC system alternatives. It is shown how the HVDC line and the converter stations selection impact each combination. Directives are presented on the 'best-solutions' for different sets of transmission parameters.
