Abstract: In order to satisfy the Power demand, Bangladesh need advance technologies to establish a promising Power sector. Some of literatures have described the effectiveness of High Voltage Direct current transmission (HVDC) over traditional transmission system. This article gives a background to HVDC transmission in general and demonstrates how HVDC Transmission can be implemented in Bangladesh Power network and could be used as backbones to establish strong and fully controllable transmission links and thereby strengthening and increasing the reliability and availability of the electrical transmission system. Again from the discussion of smart grid, cost and loss comparison in different types of transmission line it is suggested that HVDC transmission could be a new approach for the future power system of Bangladesh and would be more cost effective than the traditional power transmission system.
