Global Experts Convene in Beijing to Lay Roadmaps for Ultra High Voltage Technology

In places where electric demand is growing but room for transmission lines is limited, a new technology known as ultra high voltage (UHV) offers an important viable solution. Delivering voltages of 1,000 kV AC or higher and a minimum of 800 kV DC, UHV technology can carry large quantities of electricity long distances over a single power line corridor and with minimal loss of power.

In places where electric demand is growing but room for transmission lines is limited, a new technology known as ultra high voltage (UHV) offers an important viable solution.

Delivering voltages of 1,000 kV AC or higher and a minimum of 800 kV DC, UHV technology can carry large quantities of electricity long distances over a single power line corridor and with minimal loss of power.

On July 18-21, 2007, in Beijing, China, the Intl. Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and CIGRE (Intl. Council on Large Electric Systems) will host the International Symposium on International Standards for UHV. The event will bring together global experts to lay the plans necessary to support this new technology and its potential applications.

The symposium offers an opportunity for U.S. stakeholders to influence international UHV standardization efforts at the ground level. The conference is open to all interested stakeholders, including planners and operators of utilities and transmission systems, contractors, equipment manufacturers, and design engineers.
