The Value of Certification

​Following powerful growth in the second half of last century, today’s certifications market is in flux, with both technicians and experts questioning the real value of certifications. As a consequence the certification body is increasingly the heart of this process and its choice, its engagement is the new challenge for companies asking for conformity assessment services. CERTIFICATION A certifier [...]


HVDC Environmental Impact

The environmental impact of an HVDC interconnection system HVDC SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT HVDC technology is the only feasible solution when crossing long marine distances. This is the case of some electric interconnection projects in the Mediterranean Sea area. In fact, for long-distance transmission, HVDC systems may be less expensive and suffer lower electrical losses and underwater power cables avoids [...]


HVDC: Back to the future

​The future began in Gotland in 1950. It is here, between this island 90 kilometers off the coast of Sweden and the mainland, that the first direct current connection for the transmission of electricity was made. Though limited in size and power, the project has had enormous resonance. In fact, the prototype developed by ABB showed the world that transmitting energy in HVDC is possible. The technology [...]


Dam Safety for Hydropower Development

Hydropower projects can actively contribute topoverty reduction and life quality enhancementin local communities Hydropower is renewable because it draws its essential energy from the sun which drives the hydrologic cycle that, in turn, provides a continuous renewable supply of water. Hydropower accounts for more than 92 percent of all renewable energy generated and continues to be one of the most [...]


Smart grids for preventing blackouts?

​ Transmission adequacy problems versus electrical growing consumptions, control and protection technological ageing, unpredictable renewable sources penetration, unbundling and market distortion effects, lack of coordination between system operators… are just examples of possible root causes which led  to partial or total blackouts in recent years worldwide. USA and European large disturbances on [...]


ORP Potential can enhance flexibility

High operational flexibility (e.g. the ability of a power plant for fast start-up and to adjust load output as a function of changing of market requirement) is an essential pre-requisite to ensure economic success in a liberalized market. Plants under cycling duty are subjected to excursions of temperature, pressure, water flow rate, making very difficult to follow appropriate cycle chemistry guideline [...]
