Intermediate generation raises the stability limit of the link. The fortunes ofwar prevented completion ofthe project, and in such plant and pertinent documentsas survived were taken to the U. 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.

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 a control grid hdc prevents the are from reaching the anode until it is desired that the valve begin to conduct.

In this respect a homopolar line is preferable to a bipolar tine in cases where continuai ground current is. Constant-current operation was chosen because the hot-cathode tubes then used couId not withstand the high short-circuit currents expected to occur on a constant-voItage system. A demonstration of dc transmission using kkimbark steel-tank mercury-arc conversion was given at Zurich, Switzerland, inat the Fifth Swiss National Exhibition.

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. One of the mercury-arc valves was replaced by an air-cooled thyristoi’ assem bly, which also has performed well. The ac line, of course, also has this reversibility. Power fiow is normally from the mainland to Gotland but is sometimes in the opposite direetion. Each terminal has two converters of equal rated voltages in series on the dc side.

Each pole would be switched independently of the kimvark. 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 initiative in exploring the use of mercury-arc valves for dc transmission was taken by the General Electric Company. Either converter, however, can function as rectifier or inverter, permitting power to be transmitted in either direction. B1S The line carried 5.

Thus was demonstrated a feature of dc transmission that has been important in several subsequent instalIations: Then switches 3 would be opened, isolating the faulted line.

They transmitted 4 MW at kV a distance of 3 mi 5 km over an existing line from a station ia the Hhvdc district of Berlin to one in the Moabit district. The rnonopolar link has one conductor, usually of negative polarity, and ground or sea returno.

After two smaller experi 2’mentsB1. Livro – Whitebook Livro – Whitebook. In the figure, one bank of series capacitors for this pur pose is shown at the middle of the tine. Practical ground electrodes were developed, and various kinds of valves and converter control were kjmbark. 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 phrase “transmission link” denotes the transmission line proper together with its terminal and auxiliary equipment. The whole switching operation would take about 0. At both ends of the tines are converters, the components of which are transformers and groups of trnasmission arc valves. Exp1 queda livre Experimento de queda livre. Each converter has two vaIve groups rated 50 kV, A, 10 MW, the groups being in series on the dc side.

The distance is far toa great for ac eable transmission. 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. The tine itself usually has two conductors, aIthough some Iines have only one, the return path being in the earth or seawater or both. Most long overhead ac tines require series compensation of part of the induetive reaetanee.

The Swedish State Power Board decided to use alternating ‘-eurrent for the north-to-south transmission already mentioned. This being so, two parallel three-phase circuits are required for reliable transmission see Fig.


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.

Direet-current links are classified as shown in Figure 2. The converter at each end of the line had 12 hot-cathode glass-envelope thyratrons in 6 series pairs. The bus-tie switches I are normally open.

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. These reactors are usually placed at intermediate switching stations and are so indicated in Figure Ih. Norrnally they operate at equal current; then there is no ground current. Power is adjusted automatically to maintain rated frequency 50 Hz in Gotland.

After the more rugged steel-envelope mercury-pool ignitron became available, however, the line was converted in to constant-voltage operation.

The capability of ali converters would then be usable, and the power normally carried transmisslon two conductors would then be carried by one. 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.

The current ratings are to A per anode. Parte 1 de 6. The line transmits 20 MW at kV through a single-conductor cable, with return path through the sea and earth. A representative single-circuit dc link is shown in Figure le. Russian engineers have concentrated transmissioon single-anode valves, which so far appear to have been less successful than the ASEA valves.

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. One pole of a four conductor transmiasion is shown in Figure Id, with two converters per terminal.

Therefore three-pole switching is always used to clear permanent faults, although such a fauIt may involve only one conductor.
