A recently proposed concept of simultaneous ac-dc power transmission enables the long extra high-voltage ac lines to be loaded close to their thermal limits. The conductors are allowed to carry a certain amount of dc current superimposed on usual ac. This paper presents the feasibility of small power tapping from composite ac-dc power transmission lines which would pass over relatively small communities/rural areas having no access to a major power transmission network. The proposed scheme is digitally simulated with the help of a PSCAD/EMTDC software package. Simulation results clearly indicate that the tapping of a small amount of ac power from the composite ac-dc transmission line has a negligible impact on the normal functioning of the composite ac-dc power transmission system.
