Then switches transmision would be opened, isolating the faulted line. Perhaps an additional belief was that there was no future in dc transmission. The current ratings are to A per anode. The fortunes ofwar prevented completion ofthe project, and in such plant and pertinent documentsas survived were taken to the U.
The initiative in exploring the use of mercury-arc valves for dc transmission was taken by the General Electric Company. A representative single-circuit dc link is shown in Figure le. If a permanent fault occurred on the lower conductor, the converters connected to it would be controlled ikmbark as to bring the voltage and current on it to zero.
Each pole would be switched independently of the other. The whole switching operation would take about 0. Practical ground electrodes were developed, and various kinds of valves and converter control were tested.
Therefore three-pole switching is always used to clear permanent faults, although such a fauIt may involve only one conductor. After two smaller experi 2’mentsB1. Parte 1 de 6. The ac input at Mechanicville was at a frequency of 40 Hz, and the output at Schenectady was at 60 Hz.
The converter at the sending end is called a reetifier, and that at the receiving end an inverter.
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. B4,S Power of 0. 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 ground current. It aided further development ofvalves by permitting them to be tested under service conditions. One of the mercury-arc valves was replaced by an air-cooled thyristoi’ assem bly, which also has performed well.
Among these are a limiting the deerease in stability power Iimit attributable to switching out one circuit to clear a fault or trransmission 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.
In the figure, one bank of series capacitors for this pur pose is shown at the middle of the tine. 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 diredt 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 kimbaro tubes then used couId not withstand the high short-circuit currents expected to occur on a constant-voItage system. The Swedish State Power Board decided to use alternating ‘-eurrent for the north-to-south transmission already mentioned. Power is adjusted automatically to maintain rated frequency 50 Hz in Gotland.
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.
Large inductances ealled de. Exp1 queda livre Experimento de queda livre. Each terminal has two converters of equal rated voltages in series on the dc side. In this respect a homopolar line is preferable to a bipolar tine in cases where continuai ground current is. The rnonopolar link has one conductor, usually of trans,ission polarity, and ground or sea returno.
Power fiow is normally from the mainland to Gotland but is sometimes in the opposite direetion. Each converter has two vaIve groups rated 50 kV, A, 10 MW, the groups being in series on the dc side.
One pole of a four conductor line is shown in Figure Id, with two converters per terminal. 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. Direet-current links are classified as shown in Figure 2. The neutral points junctions between converters are grounded at one or both ends.
If both neutrals are grounded, the two poles can operate inde pendently. B1S The line carried 5. Next the converter voltages would be raised to equality with those of the respective adjacent converters, after which switches I would be closed.
The distance is far toa great for ac eable transmission.
