Colin Davidson, GE Grid Solutions, talks about  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.
