    The very first commercial high-voltage dc (HVdc) transmission system, commissioned in 1954, had black-start capability. This system links the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea with the Swedish mainland. Gotland had very few generating units, and the HVdc system was required to start up and deliver power without any generation operating on Gotland. Because the HVdc stations used line-commutated c...
