Dogger Bank - Connecting the world’s largest offshore wind farm to UK grid
HVDC Light® converter systems will connect offshore wind farms in the Dogger Bank region of the North Sea to the UK transmission network. It is the first ever use of HVDC for connecting offshore wind farms in U.K.
HVDC (high-voltage direct current) is a highly efficient alternative for transmitting large amounts of electricity over long distances and for special purpose applications. As a key enabler in the future energy system based on renewables, HVDC is truly shaping the grid of the future.
