Title: Harmonic Composition of the Currents of Power Windings in 500 KV Thyristor Controlled Shunt Reactor with Split Valveside Windings

Abstract

The design and current spectrum of a thyristor valve controlled shunt reactor (TCSR) with split valveside windings are described. The dependence of the amplitudes of higher-order harmonics of the power winding current on the TCSR operating regime are presented for this TCSR design.

  • In the past, BC Hydro used circuit breaker closing resistors to limit switching surges on its 500 kV transmission system. This approach was considered undesirable for new transmission lines and an innovative scheme incorporating special transmission line surge arresters and controlled high speed autoreclosing of the circuit breaker was developed. The scheme and its basis as applied on a new 330 km long 500 kV transmission line are described. Actual line switching tests, also described, confirmed the validity of the studies performed and applied design concepts, and the value of the scheme.
  • The arc-fault recharge phenomenon in single-phase automatic reclosure (SPAR) of a line is examined. Abrief description is given of the design of a 500 kV thyristor controlled shunt reactor (TCSR) with split valve-side windings. This type of TCSR is shown to effectively quench a single-phase arc fault in a power transmission line and shortens the SPAR cycle time.
  • Field experience is reported for a thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) recently commissioned at BPA`s Slatt substation. Subsynchronous resonance tests show that TCSC interactions with shaft dynamics of PGE`s Boardman steam generator are well understood and are effectively avoided by normal TCSC valve firing logic. Modulation tests, performed with the Boardman plant off line, show that the TCSC can be a powerful and responsive actuator for swing damping. Security considerations did not permit lightly damped operation of the controlled plant. Close analysis indicates that the TCSC damping contribution, though small, was measurable. The best estimate is that damping for themore » McNary mode is 7.33% and 8.55%, for the TCSC damper loop open and closed respectively. TCSC testing and monitoring is facilitated by an advanced interactive measurement network representing BPA`s approach to the information requirements of major control systems.« less
  • A new type of series capacitor, controlled by thyristor switches, is presented. Its major components, basic operating modes, and control/protection system are described. With respect to the first installation at the Slatt substation, the design, ratings, and test program are summarized. A major program to develop new technologies for enhancing power transmission has been initiated. This program, named FACTS for Flexible AC Transmission Systems, is intended to provide new systems and methods of operation to help electric utilities get the most from their investments in transmission networks. Scoping studies were conducted in 1989-1990 to identify the benefits of FACTS concepts,more » and to provide direction for the development of hardware systems. One outcome of those studies was to shown that a Thyristor-Controlled Series Compensation (TCSC) system should be developed, as a number of benefits could be achieved in a cost-effective manner.« less
  • This paper describes Bonneville Power Administration's first 500-kV back-to-back shunt capacitor installation. The primary purpose of the capacitor banks is to support AC system voltage for transient stability following an outage of the HVDC Intertie line between Oregon and Southern California. Design studies and equipment requirements are detailed herein in addition to Electromagnetic Transients Program (EMTP) studies and subsequent field test results. Current-limiting reactors are used to limit inrush and outrush currents during capacitor switching. It is believed that this is the first 500-kV back-to-back capacitor installation in the United States.
