Swiss hybrid lines in the public eye


Under the national “Energy Turnaround” research programme (NRP 70), the “Hybrid overhead power lines for Switzerland” project implemented by the ETH Zurich, one of the leading universities for technology and the natural sciences, is supported by TSC member Swissgrid, the Swiss transmission system operator (TSO). The project is about the combination of direct and alternating current systems to increase the transfer capacity of existing 380kV overhead lines and became publicly known at the 10th Energy Research Conference held in Lucerne, Switzerland, on 14 and 15 April.
