Title: Electric Power Interconnection of Five Islands of Hawaii
Authors: Yoshida, Steven
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: A high voltage direct current submarine interconnection of the islands of Hawaii, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and Oahu appears to be a possible solution to Hawaii's growing need for more electrical power. Such an interconnection will distribute the power output of at least two large power plants to be built, one on Oahu and one on Hawaii. These two plants may be either nuclearly powered or geothermally powered, permitting large plant output to cover the state's entire load. An interconnection of this nature may prove to be economically feasible, as shown by previous submarine interconnections in other parts of the world. However, due to the extreme depth encountered in the Alenuihaha Channel between the islands of Maui and Hawaii, this interconnection will be far more difficult than any previous interconnection, and will require a specially designed cable.
