    The transition to a low-carbon economy will create major challenges for the European energy sector in the 21st century. In this sector, electricity is a very important vector for allowing a lower consumption of fossil fuels while maintaining a competitive European economy. The European transmission grid and European transmission system operators (TSOs) are at the core of the complex European elect... View full abstract»

    Immediately after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011, the German federal government imposed a moratorium on nuclear power plants. In doing so, it shifted the fundamental transformation of the electrical system in the Federal Republic of Germany into top gear. Germany's neighboring countries did not remain unaffected. Moving up the deadline for the nuclear phaseout increased the pace of the alr... View full abstract»

    Several initiatives have been launched in the last decade in the European Union (EU) to align pan-European power grid development with the EU?s policy targets, particularly in the energy and climate change fields. The building of new infrastructures, initially driven mainly by the need for increased cross-border trading and integration of the wholesale electricity markets, is nowadays also strongl...

    Implementing smart grids is central to the transition to a low-carbon economy, and DSOs are key players in this transition. A far-reaching change-one could say a revolution-in power systems is indeed ongoing; designing and implementing smart grids is not an option but an absolute necessity. If we do not do it, or if we do it too slowly, we will face major problems. To prepare, European DSOs are ma... View full abstract»

    When it was adopted in 2009, the energy and climate policy package created by the European Union (EU)?which consisted of targets for renewable energy consumption (20%), greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions reductions (20%), and energy savings (20%), all to be met by 2020?was hailed as some of the world?s most advanced legislation for moving toward a more sustainable and secure energy system. Although Eu... View full abstract»

  • dc Power Transmission: Mercury-Arc to Thyristor HVdc Valves [History]

    The valve, which blocks and conducts current periodically, is truly the heart of HVdc. There were complex factors associated with mercury-arc valves that didn't permit the precise prediction of its performance, whereas the performance of thyristor valves can be predicted with remarkable accuracy. The advances in the solid-state valve have made HVdc economically much more competitive. As a conseque... View full abstract»
