Research on the Long-distance Transmission


In view of the imbalanced distribution of power load and resources, including the status of electric shortagein some cities in our country, the article discusses the long-distance transmission technology. It mainly analyzed two ways of the long-distance transmission: UHV AC transmission and UHV DC transmission. The fractional frequency transmission technology and half wavelength AC transmission technology of AC transmission are introduced. Some key technologies of long-distance transmission are described. It has a guess for long-distance transmission future direction.
