System design is the basis of construction and operation of HVDC systems. It defines the overall philosophy for the HVDC transmission system and enables the ratings and specifications for the equipment integrated in the project.
This document focuses on the system design of converter stations. It is applicable to point-topoint and back-to-back HVDC systems based on line-commutated converter (LCC) technology.
This document provides guidance and supporting information on the procedure for system design and the technical issues involved in the system design of HVDC transmission projects for both purchaser and potential suppliers. It can be used as the basis for drafting a procurement specification and as a guide during project implementation.
