Influence of Embedded HVDC Transmission on System Security and AC Network Performance

This brochure highlights the gain in flexibility provided by an embedded HVDC link (defined as a DC link with at least two ends connected to a single synchronous AC network) for an existing HVAC grid. It also points out the possible technical issues that may arise, along with the different capabilities and performances depending on the underlying DC technology. Illustrations through existing or planned projects are proposed, in addition to open models for a benchmark network and VSC converters.
