Introduction

HVDC Technology and Its Future 1

High voltage, direct current (HVDC) is the new means of current transmission. Previously the use of alternating current for the same purpose has been employed. But with the increased improvement in technology the methods are changing. The new emerging technology always serves as a cheaper source.

HVDC also provides the same benefit. When long distances are covered for the transmission of electric current a significant amount of electrical loss is observed.

This loss can be greatly reduced by the use of HVDC technology. Underwater power cables are a huge application of this technology. Usually there is a need to charge and discharge the cable capacitor when the means of transmission is alternating current. But with HVDC this restraint too has been eliminated.
