Panel 07 May 2024

Large scale installations of inverter based renewable generation in remote locations has increase interest in the application of HVDC transmission and flexible ac transmission systems (FACTS) devices, possibly with energy storage. Schemes have been proposed or implemented for applications ranging from bulk power transfer, transmission support for off-shore and on-shore wind applications, providing dynamic active and reactive support, as well as multiterminal HVDC grids for either urban areas as nation spanning areas. This panel session introduces fundamental concepts of HVDC transmission systems and FACTS devices. The presentations are tutorial in nature and do not presume familiarity with power electronics.
