Electrical energy is not always available and cannot always be easily generated where it is needed most. Huge promising energy resources, such as offshore wind or hydro power, are often located far away from the centers of load. How can electricity be transmitted from where it is generated to where it is needed in the most efficient and feasible way?
Transmission distances, as well as power demand, will continue to grow, and transmission systems will have to meet these challenges in an increasingly complex environment. In addition, there is a tendency to interconnect existing grids on an international level. Innovative Siemens technology, such as the full bridge topology for HVDC PLUS systems, makes it possible to transmit more power over longer distances in a highly efficient and reliable manner.
Trendsetting and innovative Siemens HVDC solutions are a major contribution to bridge growing distances between generation and load with less transmission losses as well as to ensure the asynchronous grid connections. Siemens’ innovative solutions help ensure stable grid operation and offers transparent as well as targeted power transmission even in highly complex settings.
High-voltage substations play a key role in enabling the reliable transmission of large amounts of power. As a turnkey contractor, Siemens offers the one-stop planning and construction of customized, state-of-the-art high-voltage substations worldwide.
Consisting of two concentric aluminum tubes, gas-insulated lines (GIL) are an excellent technology solution for compact underground power transmission. GIL are space saving, flexible in installation and fulfill the highest safety standards.
Siemens technical expertise and experience gained from decades of market leadership in many fields of power transmission solutions have led to innovations such as highvoltage DC compact switchgear, the full bridge topology, and solutions for the further increase of the voltage level in HVDC systems.
