New challenges for High voltage transmission
In able to fully integrate renewable energies and to stop to use fossil energy and nuclear power, there is a need to evolve the current electric grid in a new one called the supergrid. This new grid will be based on a mix of High Voltage AlternativeCurent (HVAC) and High voltage Direct Current (HVDC) junctions highly meshed with Gas Insulation Substation (GIS) as nodes. While HVAC GIS technologies are well mastered, HVDC ones are still at the beginning. One weakness of the equipment being dielectric insulators, industries may have to conceive new dielectric formulations or improved ones. This paper presents a list of properties and values to target for future dielectrics formulation. At the end, it highlights as well, the importance of health and environnement and how their consideration have to be at the same level of attention than the final properties of the dielectrics.
