    1. 1. HVDC - Voltage Source Conversion Transmission Technology for the Age of Renewables Washington State Ocean Energy Conference November 9th , 2011 Paul B. Manson President & CEO – Sea Breeze Power Corp.
    2. 2. HVDC Voltage Source Conversion (HVDC VSC) Technology HVDC VSC Smart Grid - Friendly  Fast - Responsive - Controllable  Suited for Automated Use Regional Applications  Offshore and Remote Sites  Distant Weak Connections  ‘Ride Through’ Capability  Seams Issues Technical Attributes  VARs – Versatile Reactive Power  Black Start Capability  1500MW Potential Capacity
    3. 3. HVDC – Proven Technology TechnologyHigh Voltage Direct Current One of the World’s Leading Engineering Companies Applications of HVDC and HVDC Light® in Europe
    4. 4. HVDC Light® Installations TechnologyHigh Voltage Direct Current – Voltage Source Conversion(ABB version: HVDC Light®) 56kV
    5. 5. Environmental Attributes Technology Predictable Permitting EMF Free No Audible Noise No Visual Impairment on Land Fewer Land Use Issues/ Less Herbicide 17.6% the Carbon Impact of AC OHL Marine Settings  Solid Dielectric Cables  No Leakage of Coolants  Directional Drilling Beneath Inter-tidal Zones  Minimal Environmental Impact
    6. 6. Technology Project Description
    7. 7. How HVDC supports integration of Renewables • Capable of long distance interconnections for remotely located resources • Low line losses for remotely located resources • Best available technology for interconnection to weak grid interconnection points • Digital, fast control over the direction of flow – for a grid increasingly used for shifting available intermittent resources • "Ride-through" capability
    8. 8. How HVDC supports integration of Renewables Example
