The HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) Transmission Systems are used for power transmission over long distances. These make use of DC for transmission of power. They can interconnect networks of varying frequencies and features.

Segment Insights:

The HVDC Transmission market has been segmented based on the component, technology, project type, and application.

Based on the component, the HVDC transmission market is segmented as Converter Stations, Transmission Cables, and Others.

On the basis of the technology, the segmentation is Capacitor Commutated Converter (CCC) based, Line Commutated Converter (LCC) based, and Voltage Source Converter (VSC) based. The VSC technology is used for the conversion of AC to DC voltage by switching in and out of small DC capacitors. Two types of voltage converters are used for this purpose, inverters, and rectifiers. The main objective of a VSC HVDC system is a constant transmission of Dc power from rectifier to inverter. These VSC converters can be are controllable voltage source for the HVDC transmission.

By Project Type, the market is bifurcated as Back-to-Back, Point-to-Point, and Multi-terminal.

Based on the Application, the market is divided as Bulk Power Transmission, Infeed Urban Areas, and Interconnecting Grids. The infeed urban areas are growing in the applications segment. These HVDC systems are used to feed electricity to the densely populated urban centers, where it is not ideal to use overhead wires. Even though it is more expensive, the utilization of underground lines is increasing. In recent times, many new developments are it residential or commercial, have an underground utility infrastructure.

The APAC region is anticipated to grow for the HVDC transmission market. This is due to the fact that there is a tremendous consumption of power in this region due to the constant development of infrastructure, and industrialization. Major countries such as China have been investing in renewable energy and utilizing the HVDC technology for power transmission. The most powerful transmission highways are being made in China.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Allows for long-distance transmission with less attenuation

  • Increasing inclination towards renewable energy

  • Increasing support from government by developing policies for HVDC transmission
