GE supports power grids of the future with Europe’s First MVDC link

By Paul Dvorak GE Energy Connections will deliver Europe’s first Medium-Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) link as part of Scottish Power Energy Network’s Angle-dc project in Anglesey and North Wales. The technology will be a critical project asset. The Angle-DC project aims to demonstrate a novel network reinforcement technique by converting an existing 33-kilovolt (kV) ac circuit to dc operation.
GE’s Power Conversion ac-to-dc converters will be located at a 33-kV substation in Bangor and at a similar substation on the Isle of Anglesey.
As the electricity demands in the region increase, uncontrolled power flows are putting the system at risk by exceeding thermal limits of
