The paper advocates a comparative study of HVDC and HVAC power system. The High voltage direct current (HVDC) is preferred technology for sending a chunk of power across long distances with fewer losses. HVDC results in higher efficiency, excellent voltage profile, regulation, economical, lesser conductor, no reactive power compensation, healthy stability and reliability than an equivalently-sized high voltage alternating current (HVAC) system transmitting the same amount of power.
