The new verification facility will support the company’s entry into the global market for voltage-source converters systems (VSCs), targeting more than ¥50bn ($450m) in global orders for its HVDC-Diamond systems by 2020.
HVDC systems are increasisngly popular, reducing CO2 emissions by enabling the efficient integration and expanded use of renewable energies, including photovoltaic and offshore wind power. Mitsubishi Electric estimates that the global market for HVDC systems was worth about $7bn and is expected to grow by approximately 6 percent per annum.
There are two types of HVDC systems─VSC systems and line-commutated converter (LCC) systems─of which the former does not require an external power source for commutation and the latter does. VSC-based HVDC systems are expected to attract greater demand because they require fewer conditions for connecting transmission lines.
Through its new verification facility, the company will offer highly reliable systems through verifying function and operation performance including a fault on the AC network and DC network with actual scale.
