(BDT1=USD0.013) EUROPE Siemens presents new technology for converter stations German manufacturer Siemens has announced a new “full bridge technology,” which will be used in the latest models of converter stations. Siemens claims that the use of the full bridge technology makes it possible to resolve faults in the direct current (DC) sections quickly and flexibly, with no need to switch the system off, and also stabilises the alternate current (AC) grid at the same time. In October 2015, Siemens was awarded a contract worth EUR900 million to build two converter stations for the ULTRANET direct current project. Germany’s Amprion and Transnet BW are implementing the project, which involves the first of three planned high- voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) links between northern and southern parts of Germany. The project will have two converter stations with a transmission capacity of 2,000 MW.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
