Abstract

Generally lines transmitting power from one point to another are high voltage alternating
current (HVAC) lines. Though alternating currents has its own disadvantages they are used keeping in
mind the economical aspects. There are many Researchers and Industrialists who are involved in
advancing High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission lines, facing the limitation offered by
HVAC transmission lines. The HVDC transmission lines had limited voltage rise for transmission but
advancement in power electronics help in overcoming that limitation of HVDC.
