Line commutated HVDC transmission lines are well es-tablished for wide area power distribution, despite their demand for minimum AC voltage and limitations to point to point connections. HVDC grids promise to overcome these limitations by utilizing self-commutated topologies, thus introducing black start capability and enabling inter-connection of several HVDC power lines.
