This paper illustrates the European Union NEWGEN research project, entitled 'New Generation of HVDC Insulation Materials, Cables and Systems', with 10 partners over 5 EU Countries. The objective of NEWGEN is to develop and proof new insulation materials, manufacturing solutions, online condition monitoring, and comprehensive life and reliability modelling tools for next-generation of extruded HVDC cables and cable systems, thus fostering the reliability and resilience of the European HVAC/-DC transmission grid.
