Russian engineers have concentrated on single-anode valves, which transmissuon far appear to have been less successful than the ASEA valves.

B4,S Power of 0. Each pole would be switched independently of the other. Direet-current links are classified as shown in Figure 2. The converter at the sending end is called a reetifier, and that at the receiving end an inverter. Power fiow is normally from the mainland to Gotland but is sometimes in the opposite direetion.

If both neutrals are grounded, the two poles can operate inde pendently. Valves for HV dc transmission are invariably of single-phase eonstruction, in contrast to the polyphase valves with mercury-pool cathode formerly used extensively in low-voltage rectifiers for industrial and railway application.

The line transmits 20 MW at kV through a single-conductor cable, with return path through the sea and earth. Building the dc link was judged more economical than construeting additional thermal power plants on the directt. Intermediate generation direcf the stability limit of the link. The converter at each end of the line had 12 hot-cathode glass-envelope thyratrons in 6 series pairs. Circuit breakers are installed only on the ac sides of the converters.

The bus-tie switches I are normally open. Livro – Direft Livro – Whitebook. A noteworthy feature of ASEA valves is the use of several, usually four, anodes in multiple on single-phase valves.

This being so, two parallel dlrect circuits are required for reliable transmission see Fig. After the more rugged steel-envelope mercury-pool ignitron became available, however, the line was converted in to constant-voltage operation.

On many long EHV lines, shunt reactors are required for limiting the voltage, especially at light loads, but they may be required even at full load. If the transformers are operated as an integral part of the link, only 10w-voItage circuit breakers are required.


There are also several grading electrodes placed between the control grid and the anode for obtaining a more uniform potential gradient than would otherwise existo The grading electrodes are kept at the desired potentials by connecting them to taps on an externaI resistance-capacitance potential divider the ends of kkimbark are connected to the anode and control grid.

Each converter has two vaIve groups rated 50 kV, A, 10 MW, the groups being in series on the dc side. EHV transmission links, superposed on a lower-voltage ac network, or inter eonnecting two such networks, or connecting distant generating plants to an ac network, are compared as to their principal components and the arrange ments thereof, according to whether the line operates on ac or dc. These reactors are usually placed at intermediate switching stations and are so difect in Figure Ih.

Norrnally they operate at equal current; then there is no ground current.

Therefore three-pole switching is always used to clear permanent faults, although such a fauIt may involve only one conductor. The capability of ali converters would then be usable, and the power normally carried by two conductors would then be carried by one.

Aboutcontrol electrodes were added to silicon diodes, giving silicon controlled rectifiers SCRsalso called thyristors. In the event of a fault on one conductor, the other conductor with ground return can carry up to half of the rated load.

The ac input at Mechanicville was at a frequency of 40 Hz, and the output at Schenectady was at 60 Hz. Figure la shows a single-eircuit three-phase ac line. After two smaller experi 2’mentsB1. Next the converter voltages would be raised to equality with those of the respective adjacent converters, after which switches I would be closed.

Three-phase tines eannot be operated, except for a very short time Iess than 1 sec with one or two conductors open, because such operation causes unbalanced voltages in the ac system and interference in parallel telephone lines. Among these are a limiting the deerease in stability power Iimit attributable to switching out one circuit to clear a fault or for line maintenance, b Iimiting the overvoltage when a line is energized from one end, c providing a place for the connection of grounding transformers to limit the overvoltages of the unfaulted phases with respect to ground when one phase is faulted to ground, and d for con nection of intermediate loads or generation.


These breakers are not used for clearing faults on the dc line or most misoperations ofthe valves, for these faults can be cleared more rapidly by grid controlof the valves. The distance is far toa great for ac eable transmission.

The initiative in exploring the use of mercury-arc valves for dc transmission was taken by the General Electric Company. This system of grading elec trodes, invented by U. Most long overhead ac tines require series compensation of part of the induetive reaetanee. B1S The line carried 5. The fortunes ofwar prevented completion ofthe project, and in such plant and pertinent documentsas survived were taken to the U.

They transmitted 4 MW at kV a distance of 3 mi 5 km over an existing line from a station ia the Charlottenburg district of Berlin to one in the Moabit district. Their ratings have increased, however, with surprising rapidity, and it seems certain that such valves will soon replace mercury-arc valves in HV dc use. In a bipolar scheme reconnection of the whole converter to one pole of the line is more complicated and is usually not feasible because of graded insulation. Large inductances ealled de.

M uch of the time when power is delivered to Gotland, there are no generators in operation there, the only synchronous maehine being a condenser.

Plans have been announced for doubling the voltage and power on the existing cable by the addition of a new thyristor valve group to each terminal, thereby doubling the voltage. The hornopolar Iink has two or more conductors ali having the same polar ity, usually negative, and always operates with ground returno In the event of a fault on one conductor, the entire converter is available for connection to the remaining conductor or conductors, which, having some overload capability, can carry more than half of the rated power, and perhaps the whole rated power, at the expense of increased tine loss.

Perhaps an additional belief was that there was no future in dc transmission.
