Thyristors for dc transmission

Journal Article:

Abstract

As a first stage towards determining the feasibility of applying thyristors to hvdc converter terminals, the Westinghouse Electric Corporation has built a converter laboratory capable of testing thyristors under conditions similar to those which would have to be met in a 200 kV dc system. The equipment has been designed to test a 5 kV 600 A group of thyrisotrs, elevated 200 kV above earth. This rating has been chosen so that there would be a sufficient number of thyristors in series to enable the gating and voltage division characteristics to be investigated and at the same time the group could be operated at a potential equivalent to a complete 200 kV dc bridge.
