The article reports on the power transmission project HVDC East-South Interconnector in India. The project is the eight in a series of HVDC links in the country, interconnecting its five asynchronous regional power grids, thus making a flexible power transfer between them based on supply and demand possible. The Relative Aging Indication and Load Factor Limitation utilises the overload capacity of the system more effectively without the need to install additional thyristors connected in series.
