  • Glossary of technical terms commonly used by ABB — ABB Group

    HVDC induces minimal magnetic fields, so the power lines may be built safely closer to human habitation. In the 1990s ABB developed the HVDC Light technology which made it possible to have long underground transmission (see HVDC Light). In 2006 ABB carried out the first test circuit on +/- 800 kV ultrahigh-voltage DC (see Ultrahigh voltage).
