The hornopolar Iink has two or more conductors ali having the same polar ity, hvdd 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.

Next the converter voltages would be raised to equality with those of the respective adjacent converters, after which switches I would be closed.

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 breakers are required, however, for clearing faults in the transformers or for taking the transmjssion dc link out of service. Then switches 3 would be opened, isolating hdvc faulted line. In the event of a fault on one conductor, the other conductor with ground return can carry up to half of the rated load.

Each valve has two anodes working in parallel.

The distance is far toa great for ac eable transmission. Each converter has two vaIve groups rated 50 kV, A, 10 MW, the groups being in series teansmission the dc side. Livro – Whitebook Livro – Whitebook.

Thus was demonstrated a feature of dc transmission that has been important in several subsequent instalIations: 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. The fortunes transmiwsion prevented completion ofthe project, and in such plant and pertinent documentsas survived were taken to the U.

Building the kimhark link was judged more economical than construeting additional thermal power plants on the island. Present-day mereury-are valves for high-voltage transmission, known as excitrons, have, in addition kumbark the anode and the mercury-pool cathode, an ignition electrode transmisison starting the arc, one or more excitation electrodes for maintaining the are, and a control grid that prevents the are from reaching the anode until it is desired that the valve begin to conduct.


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. Among these are a limiting the deerease in stability power Iimit attributable to switching out one kimmbark 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.

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. One of the mercury-arc valves was replaced by an air-cooled thyristoi’ assem bly, which also has performed well. The phrase transmossion link” denotes the transmission line proper together with its terminal and auxiliary equipment. 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.

Direet-current links are classified as shown in Figure 2. The operation of the line was discontinued in in the belief that nothing more would be learned by continuing it. Norrnally they operate at equal current; then there is no ground current.

Circuit breakers are installed only on the ac sides of the converters.

At present these are not capable of handling the highest voltages and powers required for HV dc transmission. In this respect a homopolar line is preferable to a bipolar tine in cases where continuai ground current is. The initiative in exploring the use of mercury-arc valves for dc transmission was taken by the General Electric Company.

These reactors are usually placed at intermediate switching stations and are so indicated in Hvc Ih. EHV transmission links, superposed on a lower-voltage ac transmisssion, 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. 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.

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

The current ratings are to A per anode. This system of grading elec trodes, invented by U. Russian engineers have concentrated on single-anode valves, which so far appear to have been less successful than the ASEA valves. The line transmits 20 MW at kV through a single-conductor cable, with return path through the sea and earth.

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. Power is adjusted automatically to maintain rated frequency 50 Hz in Gotland.

Most long overhead ac tines require series compensation of part of the induetive reaetanee. A fuIl-scale km mi overhead line between a hydroelectric plant at Volgograd, formerly called Stalingrad, and the Donets Basin was energized. Three-phase tines eannot be operated, except for a very short time Iess than 1 sec with hvxc or two conductors open, because such operation causes unbalanced voltages in the ac system and interference in parallel telephone lines.

One pole of a four conductor line is shown in Figure Id, with two converters per terminal. After two smaller experi 2’mentsB1. Intermediate generation raises the stability limit of the link. 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.

A representative single-circuit dc link is shown in Figure le.

The ac line, of course, also has this reversibility. At both ends of the tines are converters, the components of which are transformers and groups of mercury arc valves. The Une loss would be four times its normal kimbrak, somewhat diminishing the delivered power. In the figure, one bank of series capacitors for this pur pose is shown at the middle of the tine.

A demonstration of dc transmission using grid-controlled steel-tank mercury-arc conversion was given at Zurich, Switzerland, inat the Fifth Swiss National Exhibition. The United States was inactive in the field of dc transmission, however, for nearly 20 years. The tine itself usually has two conductors, aIthough some Iines have only one, transmiission return ikmbark being in the earth or seawater or both.
