The recent rise of electricity generation based on renewable energy sources increases the demand for transmission capacity. Capacity expansion via the upgrade of transmission line capacity, e.g., by conversion to a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) line, is an attractive option. In this paper, it is shown that if the upgrade to HVDC is applied systematically to selected transmission lines across the grid, a hybrid architecture is obtained that enables an efficient and globally optimal solution… CONTINUE READING
