This document provides guidelines for the selection of a high-voltage directive current (HVDC) system with line-commutated converters (LCC), hereafter referred to as HVDC system, for the purposes of HVDC system planning. It covers the guidelines on the requirements for integrating HVDC systems in AC power networks, selection of rated voltage and power, overloads, circuit configuration, expandability, comparison of technical, economic, regulatory, political, social and environmental factors, etc. This document is applicable for planning an HVDC system.
This guideline is not exhaustive and it is possible that there will be other specific aspects, particular to a specific HVDC project, which will also need to be considered.
