Call For Papers

If you have new transmission research that deserves a wider audience, take this chance to submit an abstract to ACDC 2017!

ACDC is the must-attend event for transmission specialists, covering the latest technical developments in the power transmission business.

Successful authors benefit from

• An oral or poster presentation slot in the conference programme
• Your paper published in the conference proceedings
• Submitted for indexing on IET Inspec and IEEE Xplore
• A preferential registration rate
• Selected authors may also be filmed for publication on

The Technical Scope includes

Recent projects and present technology
• HVDC interconnector projects; updates on current leading edge projects
• HVDC circuit breakers and standards
• DC array collector systems for offshore wind farms
• Low Frequency AC for offshore connections
• HVDC grids, MTDC and faults on HVDC, including DC breakers
• Power systems analyses and studies

Future innovation and international projects
• Energy storage at a large scale to support the transmission system
• Advances in semiconductor materials and devices and new topologies for HVDC and FACTS, including series compensation
• The “Mediterranean grid” / Trans-European Supergrid
• Development of high power DC/DC converter
• Interconnection of existing LCC-HVDC using VSC technology
• DC fault ride through of DC grid and overhead VSC-HVDC

Real implications and applications
• Subsea and underground cables (service & installation)
• Asset management strategies for HVDC and FACTS devices
• Reliability and redundancy of both AC and DC networks including reliability analysis
• Converting AC cable/OHL to DC
• Black start experience with HVDC
