Abstract SHE Transmission together with National Grid ET Limited (NGET) and Scottish Power Transmission Limited (SPT) is proposing to establish a collaborative facility which will enable the planning, development and testing of high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission solutions in GB. This facility is known as the Multi-Terminal Test Environment (MTTE); it will house: a real-time simulator system (which simulates HVDC schemes), IT infrastructure and accommodation for replica HVDC control panels. The anticipated proliferation of HVDC systems in GB during RIIO-T1 and beyond is largely being driven by the increasing penetration of renewable generation. To date, there is limited experience in GB of the design, construction and operation of HVDC systems.
