Introduction on Modern Power Transmission Systems
Most transmission systems are designed and constructed decades ago. Their initial design allowed transmission of electric power mainly generated at few, large centralised power plants into meshed subtransmission network supplying consumers. Overhead lines are exclusively used except in dense urban areas. Nowadays the challenge is to include large and ever increasing amounts of decentralised generated power into the existing transmission network and at the same time accede to electricity market transmission demands. Furthermore public opinion reacts against the erection of new overhead lines. This has been reflected by the Danish Cable Act, which will almost underground the entire Danish transmission system (420 and 170 kV) within the next 20 years, a plan which is already commenced in many locations. Special attention seen in a forward perspective is directed towards large offshore wind generation plants such as e.g. Horns Reef and Anholt. But also future offshore transmission networks in the North Sea are seen as a gigantic vision – a vision which could be based upon the latest HVDC-VSC technology.
