This book presents the use of self-commutating static power converters in applications requiring either Ultra High Voltages (over 600 kVs), such as required by very large long distance HVDC Transmission or Ultra High Currents (in hundreds of kA), such as those used in aluminium smelters.It starts with a discussion on self-commuting voltage source conversion and multi-level voltage source conversion. It describes the injection concept and multi-level reinjection. There is a chapter on PWM-controlled HVDC transmission, also ultra high voltage DC transmission. Back to back asynchronous interconnection is covered in detail before a final chapter on ultra high current conversion. Explains the basic principles of self-commutating static power conversion and its place within industrial high current applications requiring either Ultra High Voltages or Ultra High Currents, for example large hydro plants Covers newly developed areas of an expanding field, not covered in other books, including techniques that are important to future projects especially in developing countries Concise- all topics included in one volume with a logical approach by well-published authors
