Jicable HVDC’17, Second International Symposium on HVDC Cable Systems

HVDC power links are growing in numbers and are now increasingly used for land or submarine applications includingconnection of offshore wind farms. HVDC cable systems are becoming key components of sustainable energy systems to provide large capacity of electricity transmission over long distances, across or between countries and for renewable energy delivery. Recent breakthrough innovations in the field of HVDC extruded cable systems have shownrated voltages reaching the range 400 to 700 kV,power transmission up to 3 GW and suitability not only for VSC converters types, but also for LCCconverters.

The objective of the symposium Jicable HVDC’17 is to address and discuss the following topics:

  • Research and current knowledge on the behavior of materials for HVDC cables and accessories: new materials, dielectric behavior, space charges, interfaces, ageing, reliability.
  • State-of-the-Art of the development of extrahigh voltage, DC extruded cables systems in the range 400 to700 kV:  development,testing and standardization.
  • Technical coordination between converters and cable systems: insulation coordination,transient over-voltages, DC circuit breakers.
  • Large transmission corridors: reliability of very long links including manyjoints, future technology alternative.
  • Submarine cables installation: lesson learned from experience, installation in harsh environment.
  • Submarine asset management & submarine cable repairs in case of faults..

The symposium will also includetutorials,technical visitsand a“Young researcherscontest”.
