Technical characteristics

The project adopts a more economical and more flexible multi-terminal DC system. The Yunnan Kunbei converter station at the sending end adopts UHV conventional DC, and the Liubei converter station in Guangxi and the Longmen converter station in Guangdong adopt UHV flexible DC. The technical advantage of flexible DC is that it breaks through the bottleneck of conventional DC to the receiving power grid system, and represents the future development direction of DC transmission technology.

Engineering significance

The project is a key trans-provincial transmission project identified by the National 13th Five-Year Plan for Energy Development and the 13th Five-Year Plan for Power Development. It is a national demonstration project for UHV multi-terminal DC. After the completion of the project, the annual consumption of coal in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Dawan District will be reduced by 9.2 million tons and carbon dioxide emissions will be 24.5 million tons.
