JWG A3/B4.34 Technical requirements and specifications of state-of-the-art DC switching equipment

This JWG will investigate technical requirements and the state-of-the-art specifications for "mechanical" based DC switching equipment in order to identify a guideline that may facilitate the development of efficient, reliable and cost beneficial DC switching equipment applied to the future DC grid and systems.

This way, this JWG will review the technical requirements of DC switching equipment for different applications such as multi-terminal DC systems and off-shore wind farm connections. It will collect all available specifications of the state-of-the-art DC switching equipment used at transmission and distribution voltages. It will also investigate the technical capabilities and limitations of existing and projected switching equipment mainly with mechanical operating drives and then foresee the future capability of these DC switching equipment.
