Established achievements and recent updates on HVDC cable systems

The course will be held by prof. Giovanni Mazzanti and is part of the training provided for IBES PhD Students (a.y.2023/2024) within the Electrical Engineering (EE) curriculum.

  • Date: 13 SEPTEMBER 2024  from 10:00 to 16:00

  • Event location: Auletta DEI - Department of Electrical, Electronic, and Information Engineering "Guglielmo Marconi" DEI - Viale Risorgimento, 2 - Bologna

  • Type: IBES Course


The course focuses on the fundamentals, advanced aspects, and design of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable systems, a key enabler for the “Energy Transition”. The course considers cable lines, insulation materials, and accessories, as well as cable performance, life span and reliability issues. The course will discuss space charge-related problems, which have a critical impact on extruded insulation for HVDC application, and the recent advances in extruded compounds for HVDC cables such as additives and nano-fillers.


13th September, 10am-1pm & 2pm-4pm

This course is part of the training provided for IBES PhD Students in the academic year 2023/2024.
