Medium Voltage DC; Freeing up latent grid capacity quickly and affordably

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This talk discusses the drivers behind reinforcement of the medium voltage distribution network and where MVDC could play a role. Through case studies it is shown that a MVDC, placed in the correct location, can significantly increase the renewable/low carbon/distributed generation penetration in the local area.
The technology readiness level of MVDC is discussed as is opportunities for further work.
