Dielectric testing of HVDC gas-insulated systems fundamentals for a future standard

Rapid, worldwide implementation of electrical power generation from renewable sources, often located at great distances from urban and industrial consumers, has led to the need for new, low loss, long-distance transmission systems. A result of this trend is that development of DC transmission technologies is progressing rapidly. As a part of this, gas-insulated DC transmission lines (DC GIL) and gas-insulated DC substations stations (DC GIS) are of particular interest due to their space-saving advantages.
