High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) – Project Specific Market Analysis
High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is one of the fastest growing market in the field of Transmission and Distribution because of its ability to address major issues encountered by modern grid like steep rise in renewable integration, grid congestion, security of supply, Bulk power transfer and asynchronous grid connections. Currently, there are more than 120 HVDC projects installed globally with more than 130 GW of transmission capacity. HVDC market is estimated to grow at a faster rate in years to come and will be driven by installation of offshore wind power projects in Europe and centralized generation in India and China. Regulations enforced by utilities and grid requirements will cause VSC based HVDC to dominate other existing technologies.
