HVDC switchgear – key enabler of HVDC grids for green energy

HVDC grids will be crucial for evacuating massive quantities of renewable energy. Such grids are not common in Europe yet for various reasons one of which is lack of proven protection equipment. In the European project “PROMOTioN”, it is publicly demonstrated that the protection technology is no longer a technological hurdle towards the development of such grids. This webinar highlights the recent progresses KEMA Labs made in the verification of key protection and control of components: HVDC circuit breakers and HVDC GIS.  An overview will be given on the actual status of this technology, its standardization as well as its future developments.
