The 19th International Conference on AC and DC Power Transmission
This event has taken place
Over 300 power transmission engineers from 19 countries met in Glasgow for ACDC 2023.
Attendees enjoyed 79 presentations, 21 panel speakers, two technical site visits, a tutorial, and two social events across the three days.
Key programme topics included overcoming barriers to achieve the net zero grid, a global perspective on grid resilience, planning and design of energy islands, HVDC interoperability, micro- and macro-grid deployment, and case studies of new technologies leading towards net zero.
