Brief on HVDC 2015
Brief on HVDC 2015
• Nowadays, the global projects and researches in HVDC are very actively planned and
launched especially in EU, China, India and Brazil.
• Promoting the current technical and policy making issues, a lot of discussion and
technical meetings for HVDC have been challenged for the new perspective in HVDC
world.
• However, three main topics such as HVDC Application in Power Grid, HVDC Converter
Station and Power Equipments for HVDC System are discussed separately in one
way or another.
• Therefore, we have been spending the enormous efforts to grasp the total strategic
solutions and technical information on HVDC projects.
• In this context, HVDC 2015 has been organized to provide the collective strategic and
technical information for the policy making staffs as well as technical engineers in
the major three topics - Power Grid, Converter and Power Equipments – and further to
take the initial step for Super Grid in North East Asia (China-Korea-Japan-Russia).

High Capacity HVDC Application
Needs for High Capacity HVDC
Power system operation aspect

The level of fault current in metropolitan area is increased up to the limit.

HVDC could increase power system stability
Difficulty of 765kV AC line construction

765kV AC T/L  Long construction period (severe public complaints)

Lower land cost for HVDC T/L than one of HVAC

Mitigate the issue of T/L construction
Jeju Island HVDC
Needs for HVDC in Jeju
High Generating Cost
Isolated network
 2.5 times of mainland’s cost
Continuously Increasing Power Demand
• One of the most popular tourist place
• Over 10% growth/year for last 20 years
