Increasing power demand in large metropolitan areas, combined with the fact that new exploitable energy sources are often situated far away from load centres, leads to the need of new high capacity transmission systems. The construction of new Overhead Lines (OHL), introduces challenges in terms of routing and public acceptance. There is interest in developing alternative transmission technology that has less visual impact, and ecofriendly with affordable cost [1]. The length over which power may be transferred using traditional AC cables is limited, as there is a need to supply large capacitive charging currents. In comparison, Gas-Insulated Transmission Lines (GIL) have much lower capacitance, and, have capacity to transfer large amount of power over longer distances than AC cables. If the cost of GIL were to reduce significantly as the technology matures, it could perhaps be considered as a competitive alternative to HVDC cable.
