Full-time engineering and science university researchers and PhD students are invited to submit abstracts of their research work. The topic of the abstract should fall within one of the programme categories listed below related to HVDC cables systems. Students and researchers whose abstracts are selected will be invited to present their papers, explain their poster and answer questions at Jicable HVDC’17.
First author of selected papers will be exempted from the registration fee and will receive a scholarship to contribute to their travel expenses (modalities to be explained further).
Prizes will be awarded to the authors of the three best papers.

The objective of the seminar Jicable HVDC’17 is to take stock of the developments in DC cable systems



  1. Progress on the understanding of physical phenomena and on materials for use in HVDC.
  2. Very high DC voltage: 500 kV extruded power insulated cables, current standardization,
  3. HVDC corridor projects in Europe for underground links, hybrid possible systems.
  4. Submarine HVDC links: state of the art of extruded and paper power insulated cables, power transmitted,
  5. Converters: Technical coordination for the connection « cable / converters ».


Graduate and undergraduate students; Researchers in their first or second year.


All abstracts for proposed papers should be sent to the Jicable HVDC’17 YRC secretariat in english by email
