In the past (arrows shown in blue), power has typically flowed from conventional generation source to consumer in one direction via alternating current (AC). The medium-voltage direct current (MVDC) solution system (arrows in green) could allow  for omnidirectional energy flows at larger distances. Courtesy: Siemens
