Innovative DEsigns for high-performAnce Low-cost HVDC Converters (IDEAL HVDC)

This FOA sought applications for innovative designs of HVDC VSC systems to reduce costs and promote adoption of the technology across the United States. Target areas for VSC design innovation under this FOA included, but were not limited to, increasing the power capacity of the converter, increasing the distance power can travel on the grid, decreasing the size of the converter substation, and increasing the lifespan of the system.
