Speakers: Colin Davidson, GE Grid Solutions

This talk will give an introduction to the technology of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) power transmission, which is increasingly being used to help integrate large-scale renewable power sources to the grid. Some of the real-world engineering challenges presented by this technology will be presented from the perspective of a physicist-turned-engineer.
