HVDC and Green Power Corridor: A Review

Manash Jyoti Baishya, Satyajit Bhuyan


High Voltage Direct Current transmission system can turn out to be the ideal power transmission system for bulk power and transferring clean power from remotely located hydroelectric dams to distant load centers. Therefore, the solution to the sudden increased demand for electricity can be found by evacuating remotely located bulk renewable energy and transmitting the clean power to load centers located at a significant distance away via HVDC link.
