Compendium of all HVDC projects

This page contains a Compendium of all HVDC projects around the world. The list is updated periodically.

The study committee does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy of the data provided in the compendium.


The compendium consists of an index file plus three additional zip files containing project information. If these files (you need to unzip the files) and the index file are stored in the same folder on your PC, you should be able to access each of the reports, by clicking on the hyperlink in the index file. The index file also allows you sort the projects according to your criteria.

Projects P->Z (rar, 6MB)


AG.04 HVDC system performance , the advisory group of CIGRE SC B4 and its Task Force has initiated updating work of the compendium. However, to update the compendium, supports from owners and manufacturers of HVDC systems are essential in order to obtain information about the latest data and new projects.

Furthermore, owners and manufacturers are asked to correct and to complete data sheet in the existing compendium. Awarded projects and under construction projects are also encouraged to submit reports.

Please read following protocol and use revised data sheet, which can be used for all kinds of HVDC systems including VSC schemes. After filling out the data sheet, please send it to following Task Force convener:
