HVDC: Back to the future
​The future began in Gotland in 1950. It is here, between this island 90 kilometers off the coast of Sweden and the mainland, that the first direct current connection for the transmission of electricity was made. Though limited in size and power, the project has had enormous resonance. In fact, the prototype developed by ABB […]

Conformity Assessment for LV products
​The recent changes to IEC standard for Low voltage switchgear assembly created a higher demand of tests which earlier were not mandatory. The former IEC 60439 defined indeed two different approaches to compliance: TTA – Type Tested Assembly, an assembly that has been completely type tested and PTTA – Partially Type Tested Assembly, an assembly […]
