high voltage direct current converter

An HVDC platform is a transformer platform on which highly transformed, three-phase AC voltage, for example from wind turbines, is converted into DC high voltage forhigh-voltagedirect current (HVDC) transmission and transmitted via HVDC lines.

HVDC platforms to which entire offshore wind farms (OWPs) are connected are powerful converter platforms for converting AC high voltage into DC high voltage of several hundred kilovolts (kV). Such HVDC platforms can support outputs of several gigawatts (GW).

The reconversion of the DC high voltage into AC high voltage for feeding into overhead lines takes place in converter stations in which inverters convert the DC voltage into AC voltage.
