An overview of high voltage direct current systems and applications is presented in this paper. The favorable economics of long-distance bulk-power transmission with HVDC together with its controllability make it an interesting alternative or complement to AC transmission. The higher voltage levels, mature technology, and new converter designs have significantly increased the interest in HVDC transmission and expanded the range of applications
