Network Code on High Voltage Direct Current Connections (HVDC NC)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1447 establishing a network code on requirements for grid connection of high voltage direct current systems and direct current-connected power park modules. HVDC cables are used for long distance interconnections or to connect offshore wind farms to the mainland. Harmonised rules for grid connection for HVDC systems are necessary in order to provide a clear legal framework, facilitate Union-wide trade in electricity and ensure system security, among other objectives.
