Title: Principles of HVDC Transmission



Contact Hours: 3 Hours Technical

Language: English

Format: Lecture (No Video)



The question that is frequently discussed is: “Why does anyone want to use D.C. transmission?” One reply is that electric losses are lower, but this is not true. Amount of losses is determined by the rating and size of chosen conductors. Both D.C. and A.C. conductors, either as transmission circuits or submarine cables can generate lower power losses but at increased cost since the bigger cross-sectional conductors will typically lead to lower power losses but will unfortunately cost more.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the basic principles of HVDC transmission. Presented details cover issues related to technical implementation and exploitation of HVDC systems. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address HVDC terms, basic arrangements (six pulse and twelve pulse), substation arrangements, operation and protection and voltage control.


Learning Objectives:

This continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Basic HVDC terminology
  • HVDC valve group arrangements (six and twelve pulse)
  • HVDC substation arrangements and design
  • HVDC system operation and protection
  • Essential HVDC voltage control


About The Author 

Velimir started his professional career in the Electrical Engineering Institute "Nikola Tesla" Belgrade as Project Engineer working on various distribution system planning projects. He moved to Middle East where he is involved in analysis and planning of the EHV and MV transmission and distribution networks as well as conceptual and detailed design, installation and commissioning of substations for major consultancies and local utility companies. He also got significant experience working for the major oil companies solving their complex operational issues helping them to improve overall production.

He modelled various phenomena in the power systems including steady state, dynamic, harmonic and fast transient responses. He has good knowledge in substation design, HV cable sizing and installation and earthing system design. He understands how projects are successfully managed throughout complete cycle. He has profound knowledge of power system modelling and analysis software tools, CAD design and GIS systems.     

He has rich experience working on projects in UK, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Bahrain and Serbia. Velimir authored several technical papers that were published in IEEE proceedings. He is a member of IEEE Power Society and CIGRE.
