INVERTER COMPOUNDING IN HVDC PDF

The converter is usually installed in a building called the valve hall. Early HVDC systems used mercury-arc valves , but since the mids, solid state devices such as thyristors have been used. Converters using thyristors or mercury-arc valves are known as line commutated converters. In thyristor-based converters, many thyristors are connected in series to form a thyristor valve, and each converter normally consists of six or twelve thyristor valves.

Dit Several different PWM strategies are possible for HVDC [32] but in all cases the efficiency iin the two-level converter is significantly poorer than that of a LCC because of the higher switching losses. Line-commutated converters LCC used mercury-arc valves until the s, [7] or thyristors from the s to the present day.

Consequently, in practice all LCC HVDC systems use either grid-controlled mercury-arc valves until the s or thyristors to the present day. Two optical methods are used: A typical MMC for an HVDC application contains around submodules connected in series in each valve and is therefore equivalent to a level converter. HVDC converter — Wikipedia The additional controllability gives many advantages, notably the ability to switch the IGBTs on and off many times per cycle in order to improve the harmonic performance, and the fact that being self-commutated the converter no longer relies on synchronous compoundinb in the AC system for its operation.

Early LCC systems used mercury-arc valveswith designs that had evolved from those used on high power industrial rectifiers. This simplifies the construction of the converter transformer. However, where each valve of the two-level converter is effectively a high-voltage controlled switch consisting of a large number of IGBTs connected in series, each valve of a MMC is a separate controllable voltage source in its own right. A pulse HVDC converter using thyristor valves. The two valves corresponding to one phase must never be kn on simultaneously, as this would result in an uncontrolled discharge of the DC capacitor, risking severe damage to the converter equipment.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Each MMC valve consists of a number of independent converter submoduleseach containing its own inverrer capacitor. On the AC side, the converter behaves approximately as a current source, injecting both grid-frequency and harmonic currents into the AC network.

The market for voltage-source converter HVDC is growing fast, driven partly by the surge in investment in offshore wind inevrterwith one particular type of converter, the Modular Co,pounding Converter MMC [9] emerging as a front-runner. Retrieved 20 December In fact, with a line-commutated converter, the firing angle represents the only fast way of controlling the converter. Three-phase full-wave Graetz bridge rectifier circuit using thyristors as the switching elements.

Categories Electric power distribution Electricity economics Power station technology Portals Energy Renewable energy Sustainable development. From the s onwards, [7] extensive research started to take place into static alternatives using gas-filled tubes — principally mercury-arc valves but also thyratrons — which held the promise of significantly higher efficiency. Three-phase, two-level voltage-source converter for HVDC.

Another disadvantage of the two-level converter is that, in order to achieve the very high operating voltages required for an HVDC scheme, several hundred IGBTs have to be connected in series and switched simultaneously in each valve. Because thyristors have breakdown voltages of only a few kilovolts each, HVDC thyristor valves are built using large numbers of thyristors connected fompounding series. In the most common form of the circuit, the half-bridge variant, each submodule contains two IGBTs cmpounding in series across the capacitor, with the midpoint connection and one of the two capacitor terminals brought out as external connections.

An enhancement of the six-pulse bridge arrangement uses 12 valves in a twelve-pulse bridge. Each thyristor valve will typically contain tens or hundreds of thyristor levels, each operating at a different high potential with respect to earth.

HVDC converter Operating principle of 2-level converter, single-phase representation Voltage in Graph: As ofboth the line-commutated and voltage-source technologies are important, with line-commutated converters used mainly where very high capacity and efficiency are needed, and voltage-source converters used mainly for interconnecting weak AC systems, for connecting large-scale wind power to the grid or for HVDC interconnections that are likely to be expanded to become Multi-terminal HVDC systems in future.

HVDC compounxing used as an alternative to AC for transmitting electrical energy over compoundkng distances or between AC power systems of different frequencies. The isolation method can be magnetic using pulse transformers but is usually optical. During the overlap period the DC voltage is formed from all three phase voltages.

Dulmaran There was a problem providing the content you requested For this reason, a line-commutated converter for HVDC is also considered as a current-source converter. Secondly, the submodule capacitors themselves are large and bulky. The last and most powerful mercury arc system installed was that of the Nelson River DC Transmission System in Canadawhich used six anode columns in parallel per valve and was completed in Consequently, in practice all LCC HVDC systems use either grid-controlled mercury-arc valves until the s or thyristors to the present day. HVDC systems based on voltage-source converters normally use the six-pulse connection because the converter produces much less harmonic distortion than a comparable LCC and the twelve-pulse connection is unnecessary.

Akigor Retrieved 20 December Three-level converters can synthesize three instead of only two discrete voltage levels at the AC terminal of each phase: From the s onwards, [7] cpmpounding research started to take place into static alternatives using gas-filled tubes — principally mercury-arc valves but also thyratrons — which held the promise of significantly higher efficiency. Line-commutated converters HVDC classic are made with electronic switches that can only be turned on. There was a problem providing the content you requested Two optical methods are used: Modernizing the Electrical grid. Usually one of the valve windings is star wye -connected and the other is delta-connected. This simplifies the construction of the converter transformer. Because thyristors can only be turned on not off by control action, and rely on the external AC system to effect the turn-off process, the control system only has one degree of freedom — when to turn on the thyristor. Normally, two valves in the bridge are conducting at any time: Electronic converters for HVDC are divided into two main categories.

Rather, there is a short overlap period when two valves on the same row of the bridge are conducting simultaneously. There was a problem providing the content you requested Additional passive components such as grading capacitors and resistors need to be connected in parallel with each thyristor in order to ensure that the voltage across the valve is shared uniformly between the thyristors. During the overlap period the DC voltage is formed from all three phase voltages. With some other types of semiconductor device such as the insulated-gate bipolar transistor IGBTboth turn-on and turn-off can be controlled, giving a second degree of freedom.
