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. The line transmits 20 MW at kV through a single-conductor cable, with return path through the sea and earth.

Exp1 queda livre Experimento de queda livre. At present these are not capable of handling the highest voltages and powers required for HV dc transmission. 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.

Then switches 3 would be opened, isolating the faulted line. Circuit breakers are installed only on the ac sides of the converters. This being so, two parallel three-phase circuits are required for reliable transmission see Fig.

Either converter, however, can function as rectifier or inverter, permitting power to be transmitted in either direction. B1S The line kimbwrk 5. The United States was inactive in the field of dc transmission, however, for nearly 20 years.

The Une loss would be four times its normal value, somewhat diminishing the delivered power. The initiative in exploring the use of mercury-arc valves for dc transmission was taken by the General Electric Company. The bus-tie switches I are normally open. A noteworthy feature of ASEA valves is the use of several, usually four, anodes in multiple on single-phase valves.

If both neutrals are grounded, the two poles can operate inde pendently. Long two-cireuit ac links are usually sectionalized by means of intermediate switching stations for severa reasons. The converter at the sending end is called a reetifier, and that at the receiving end an inverter. The fortunes ofwar prevented completion ofthe project, and in such plant and pertinent documentsas survived were taken to the U.


Each terminal has two converters of equal rated voltages in series on the dc side. The distance is far toa kimhark for ac transmiszion transmission. The line initially operated at constant current, the conversions from con transmisdion alternating voltage to constant current and vice versa being made by an LC bridge circuit called the monocyclic square.

Practical ground electrodes were developed, and various kinds of valves and converter control were tested. The ac input at Mechanicville was at a frequency of 40 Hz, and the output at Schenectady was at 60 Hz. 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 kimbarl the arrange ments thereof, according to whether the line operates on ac or dc.

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. The breakers are required, however, for clearing faults in the transformers or for taking the whole dc link out of service. The operation of the line was discontinued in in the belief that nothing more would be learned by continuing it.

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

Each valve has two anodes working in parallel. Intermediate generation raises the stability limit of the link.

After two smaller experi 2’mentsB1. Power fiow is normally from the mainland to Gotland but is sometimes in the opposite direetion. Next the converter voltages would be raised to equality with those tranmsission the respective adjacent converters, after which switches I would be closed. The neutral points junctions between converters are grounded at one or both ends. The capability of ali converters would then be usable, and the power normally carried by two conductors would then be carried by one.

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. Norrnally they operate at equal current; then there is no ,imbark current. Tfansmission three-pole switching is always used to clear permanent faults, although such a fauIt may involve only one conductor.

Building the dc link was judged more economical than construeting additional thermal power plants on the island.

Valves for HV dc transmission are invariably of single-phase eonstruction, in contrast trnasmission the polyphase valves with mercury-pool cathode formerly used extensively in low-voltage rectifiers for industrial and railway application. B4,S Power of 0.


These reactors are usually placed at intermediate switching stations and are so indicated in Figure Ih. One of the mercury-arc valves was replaced by an air-cooled thyristoi’ assem bly, which also has performed well.

Thus was demonstrated a feature of dc transmission that has been important in several subsequent instalIations: It aided further development ofvalves by permitting them to be tested under service conditions. In this respect a homopolar line is preferable to a bipolar tine in cases where continuai ground current is. The larger of these, rated at 20 MW, was installed at the Edgar Thompson plant of the. The current ratings are to A per jvdc. 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.

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 which are connected to the anode and control grid.

In the figure, one bank of series capacitors hfdc this pur pose is shown at the middle of the tine. 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. Present-day mereury-are valves for high-voltage transmission, known as excitrons, have, in addition to the anode and the mercury-pool cathode, an ignition electrode for starting the arc, one or more excitation electrodes for maintaining the are, and tranamission control grid that prevents the are from reaching the anode until it is desired that the valve begin to conduct.

In kimbaark 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.

A fuIl-scale km mi overhead line between a hydroelectric plant at Volgograd, formerly called Stalingrad, and the Donets Basin was energized.
