Product Catalogue: HVDC Solutions

Alstom Grid engineers are pioneers of HVDC transmission systems and have been a guiding light in this field for over 50 years. Through our global Competency Centres, our teams of engineers bring you unparalleled experience.

HVDC Back-to-Back

Alstom Grid Back-to-Back system gives your own system more flexibility and can prevent you from having to build a new generation network. The power flow is fast and accurate and prevents widespread blackouts from occurring.

HVDC MaxSineTM

A HVDC converter is used for the conversion of electrical power from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) or the other way round.It is also used to link different transmission networks or to access remote generating sources.

HVDC MaxSine® Experts

Listen to some of our Senior Experts and Senior Fellows speaking about the development of our newest energy transmission solution: HVDC MaxSine®. Filmed at the 25 MW Voltage Source Converter Demonstrator in our Stafford, UK Centre of Excellence, learn everything you need to know about the technology that will shape the future of the world's energy grids

HVDC Point-to-Point Inland Only

Transmission of bulk power over long distances.

Power is transmitted using overhead lines, underground cables, or a combination of both, with the lowest capital equipment costs and losses. The Asltom Grid system provides you with a low cost, fully functional, reliable and environmentally friendly way to transmit power.

HVDC Point-to-Point With a submarine portion

Transmission of bulk power over long distances

Power is transmitted over long distances by using overhead lines, underground cables or a combination of both. HVDC systems enable fast, accurate power flow and effectively prevent the spread of blackouts. HVDC interconnection between different power systems often eliminates the need to build new plants, saves money and reduces impact on the environment.

HVDC from Offshore Wind Farms

Transmission of bulk power over long distances
Power is transmitted using submarine cables from offshore platforms with the lowest capital equipment costs and losses. The Alstom Grid system provides you with a low cost, fully functional, reliable and environmentally friendly way to bring power to shore.

Ultra High Voltage

Staying ahead of the curve: 800 kV Ultra High Voltage Direct Current (UHVDC) transmission, with voltages of up to 800 kV, is the choice being made by many energy managers around the world for the future network developments.
