The article offers information on electric power distribution from hydroelectric plants on Madeira River in Brazil, which have a combined generating capacity of 6,450 MW. A transmission system with two direct-current (DC) parallel lines over a distance of 2,375 km was planned to interconnect Madeira River power plants with the load centers, which imposed a unique and challenging proposition for the system design team at Empresa de Pesquisa Energética (EPE).
