Technical requirements and specifications of state-of-the-art HVDC switching equipment



The new applications projected for future DC grids and multi-terminal DC systems at different voltages suggest that various DC equipment may be required; in particular all sorts of switching devices. However, the requirements for DC switching capabilities are different from those for AC equipment. In the brochure, a review of the technical requirements of HVDC switching equipment and an overview on the technical capabilities and limitations of existing switching equipment is given. Included are all sorts of switchgear such as disconnecting switches, earthing switches, transfer switches, and especially circuit breakers.
