EHV ac and dc transmission. EHV is lused to miiove large blocks of power when distances between power source and load are great. On existing transmission. Though DC transmission system was the first to born, soon it was replaced by AC transmission system. Earlier DC systems developed by the Edison’s company. A comparative study between HVDC and EHV AC Transmission Systems Aniket Bhattacharya Animesh Gupta B. Tech Power Systems Engineering B. Tech.

But, there was no convenient way to change the voltage level of DC power. Basically we are focusing upon the cumulative loss that takes place in both the modes at various locations. A smaller amount of right of way and narrower tower are required. One result was that railroads became focused on complementary long-distance heavy transport rather than local access.

Actual line distances in practice will vary according to specific transmission plans. While various measures to mitigate these constraints have been implemented, they are commonly incremental in scope and aimed at addressing specific localized network limitations.

So the issue of greatest importance is to plan and build interstate transmission as a grid with busbar-like functional characteristics.

Double circuit lines have greater height and visual impact, yet provide less capacity than kV single circuit lines.

Its controllability can help manage power flow and mitigate congestion. With this caveat in mind, some comparisons are drawn below to illustrate characteristics of various AC and DC alternatives. The transmiasion sections compare alternatives to provide MW of transmission capacity point-topoint over varying distances, where AC and DC comparisons are most meaningful. In this respect HVDC bipolar lines can approximate a double circuit AC line while requiring only one-third of the number of insulated conductor sets.

The current grid would have been built differently if present trahsmission had been envisioned from the outset.

Standard, modular components and configurations will simplify implementation and offer savings opportunities. The need to hcdc the next wind plant location is one consideration; we also need a system that is flexible enough to integrate as yet unknown new communities, businesses and additional future generation.

All DC lines, except those with an additional conductor, produce some tranmission current due to an dissymmetry when operating in bipolar mode. Project purpose and long term system benefit must drive project work scopes. For illustrative purposes and to simplify the discussion, no attempt is made to fully evaluate these alternatives in the context of a complete system.

Higher voltages can be developed if sufficient market demand emerges. Key characteristics of the desired bulk transmission interstate system are used for evaluation purposes. The altitude effects are more important to HVDC lines, since the lightning overvoltage withstand is the most sensitive insulation parameter with regard to air density.

A solution for this is to increase the transmission line voltage. In fact, for future tranamission designs, AEP is evaluating larger kV conductors in order to achieve greater efficiency.


Transmission of electric power at ultra-high voltages: Since SIL increases with nominal voltage, loadability of an AC transmission line of given length increases markedly for higher voltage lines [8]. The possible influences on the environment caused by high-power electricity transmission systems, either AC or DC, include: It must minimize property and public impact while maximizing utilization of right of way.

Overlaying AC transmission with higher EHV voltages follows a natural progression that has repeatedly proven its ability to achieve improved grid capacity, reliability, efficiency, cost and right of way utilization [3, 4].

Keywords—construction; electrical parameters; environmental impacts, power transmission capacity.

HVDC vs. HVAC transmission

A business environment conducive to investment also is needed to encourage those who would invest in building and owning the needed assets. However, the converter equipment was very large and expensive and required a lot of ehvaf. Joint studies and cooperation will be necessary to determine the final planned configurations.

Jointly, we can identify strategic broad-based interstate system plans to harvest renewable resources before the individual projects develop.
