Power resistors for high-voltage direct current transmission
When electricity is to be transported over long distances, such as from offshore wind farms to big cities in a country’s interior, then this is where our EBG power resistors come in.
In high-voltage direct current transmission scenarios (HVDC technology), they ensure that the alternating current generated in the wind farms is converted into high-voltage direct current. This reduces energy losses by four percent. In the consumption region, the electricity will then be reconverted to alternating current and fed into the grid.
