HVDC Converter Transformersup to 800 kV
Converter transformers are crucial to an HVDC transmission system. Their robustness and reliability are of paramount importance for the transmission system’s availability. The increase of power demand creates new challenges for their design.
HVDC converter transformers serve to connect the AC system (of the power generation side) to the DC transmission system, and at the other end, the DC transmission lines to the AC system (of the power consumption side).
High-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission is today widely recognised as an effective and economic solution for transporting bulk power over long distances through overhead lines or cables. Applications are steadily growing around the world
