Abstract

Refurbishing existing ac distribution cables to operate under dc conditions can offer several advantages in terms of capacity enhancement, efficiency and flexibility in power and voltage control, among others. In this paper, technical aspects such as insulation ageing, capacity and efficiency enhancement are explored. A novel idea of dynamic cable voltage rating based on the temperature dependent electric field is developed. The proposed algorithm can be incorporated in the dc link converters to obtain additional efficiency and capacity gains. Finally, challenges in the presented concept are highlighted.
