High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems enable utilities to move more power further, interconnect grids, integrate renewables, and improve network performance. HVDC systems utilize power electronics technology to convert AC and DC voltage, and are ideal for supporting existing systems or building new power highways.
GE is globally recognized for designing, manufacturing and delivering customized HVDC solutions for utilities worldwide. GE offers two HVDC technologies, Line Commutated Converters (LCC) and Voltage Source Converters (VSC), for a broad range of applications and available in a range of schemes including overhead line (point to point), back to back, submarine/land cable and offshore.
Every HVDC solution is tailored and designed based on a project-by-project assessment of the customers' individual requirements, whether it's for long distance power transmission, energy trading between independent networks or connection between asynchronous networks.
