Demo 3 Special Workshop - Upgrading multiterminal HVDC interconnectors

Codrongianos, Italy

The 3rd in our series of Best Paths Special Workshops will show the new technological solutions allowing to upgrade multi-terminal HVDC links, which the Demo 3 partners of the project are developing. The workshop will take place on 9th May 2018 at Terna station in Codrongianos, Sardinia (Italy). 


The demonstration activities aim at validating the upgrading of an existing multi-terminal HVDC interconnector using innovative components, architecture and system performances. Partners chose the High Voltage Direct Current network that connects Sardinia, Corsica and mainland Italy (called SACOI) as the laboratory for investigating new HVDC technologies.
