Access from EThOS:
Conventional electricity generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures are AC systems, which combine to form an AC grid. Supply security can be increased by interconnecting AC grids. Additionally, there is an increasing reliance on remote asyn-chronous distributed generation from bulk renewable energy sources. High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems allow asynchronous AC networks to be connected, and are able to transmit bulk power over longer distances with a lower total cost-than High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) transmission, or are perhaps the only option. At both ends of a HVDC link, a converter station is required to convert from AC to DC, or vice versa. Originally, these converters were Current Source Converters (CSCs), and later two- or three-level Voltage Source Converters (VSCs).
