Power grids around the world are undergoing an unprecedented transformation toward a more sustainable energy system, with all-times high share of renewable generation and increased consumption levels due to further electrification of transportation infrastructure and industrial processes.
This trend, positive for our society, carries new challenges for grid stability and highlights importance of new interconnection, often through HVDC technology, between the different synchronous grid areas.
In certain cases, it may be beneficial to realize a Combined Grid Solutions (CGS): a connection system with several purposes, going beyond the need of electrically interconnect point A to point B, but including integration of power sources along the corridor (AC and/or DC), compensation equipment of various kind, managing different grid scenarios and optimizing the overall grid operation.
Join us to learn how Hitachi Energy has embraced the challenge and opportunity to realized CGS, a case that could become more and more common in the years to come.
