Russian engineers have concentrated on single-anode valves, which so far appear to have been less successful than the ASEA valves. Therefore three-pole switching is always used to clear permanent faults, although such a fauIt may involve only one conductor. The converter at the sending end is called a reetifier, and that transmision the receiving end an inverter.

Aboutcontrol electrodes were added to silicon diodes, giving silicon controlled rectifiers SCRsalso called thyristors. B1S The line carried 5.

If a permanent fault occurred on the lower conductor, the converters connected to it would be controlled so as to bring the voltage and current on it to zero. Norrnally they operate at equal current; then there is no ground current. The phrase “transmission link” denotes the transmission line proper together with its terminal and auxiliary equipment.

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


On many directt EHV lines, shunt reactors are required for limiting the voltage, especially at light loads, but they may be required even at full load. The larger of these, rated at 20 MW, was installed at the Edgar Thompson plant of the.

The bus-tie switches I are normally open. Practical ground electrodes were developed, and various kinds of valves and converter control were tested. Building the dc link was judged more economical than construeting additional thermal power plants on the island.

One pole of a four conductor line is shown in Figure Id, with two converters per terminal. Each pole would be switched independently of the other. Long two-cireuit ac links are usually sectionalized by means of intermediate switching stations for severa reasons.

The whole switching operation would take about 0. The operation of the line was discontinued in in the belief that nothing more would be learned by continuing it. 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 curtent the ac system and interference in parallel telephone lines.

The line initially operated at constant current, the conversions from con stant alternating voltage to constant current and vice versa being made by an LC bridge circuit called the monocyclic square. Intermediate generation raises the stability limit of the link.

Figure la shows a single-eircuit three-phase ac line. In the figure, one bank of series capacitors for this pur pose kimbsrk shown at the middle of the tine.

A noteworthy feature of ASEA valves is the use of several, usually four, transmisson in multiple on single-phase valves. Each converter has two vaIve groups rated 50 kV, A, 10 MW, the groups being in series on the dc side. These reactors are usually placed at intermediate switching stations sirect are so indicated in Figure Ih. If both neutrals are grounded, the two poles can operate inde pendently. Either converter, however, can function as rectifier or inverter, permitting power to be transmitted in either direction.


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, curreent 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 tdansmission the unfaulted phases with respect to ground when one phase is faulted to ground, and d for con nection of intermediate loads or generation.

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 cureent kept at the desired potentials by connecting them to taps on an externaI resistance-capacitance potential divider the ends of which are connected to the anode and control grid.

The line transmits 20 MW at kV through a single-conductor cable, with return path through the sea and earth. Constant-current operation was chosen because the hot-cathode tubes then used couId not withstand the high short-circuit kimbbark expected to occur on a constant-voItage system.

Each valve has two anodes working in parallel.
