As consumers, we are all well aware of faster computers, smarter phones, brighter and flatter TV screens, and an increasingly connected world. As […]

Converter transients imposed on HVDC converter transformers

  High voltage direct current (HVDC) line commutated converter (LCC) systems have been in operation for over 50 years. At present there are more than 100 systems in operation transmitting more than 100 000 MW of power. Converter transients, imposed on HVDC converter transformers, can produce voltages and currents which result in equipment failure. The […]
