Samenvatting

Due to the changing and growing network, operators are looking at more creative and economic ways to reinforce power transportation paths. One such way, being researched by the DNV GL led FLINK project, is to use existing AC cables as flexible DC-links in the medium voltage level. To determine the capacity gain from switching to DC, one must consider many assumptions. The most influential assumption being the increase in applied voltage magnitude. There is, however, a lack of practical research in MVDC. Some assumptions do not scale directly from higher voltages. For example skin and proximity effects may be negligible. Depending on the assumptions made, the capacity gain can range between -50% to >177%. This paper explores the assumptions used to determine capacity gained by MVDC.
