High-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission - Vocabulary

IEC 60633:2019 is available as IEC 60633:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 6033:2019 defines terms for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power transmission systems and for HVDC substations using electronic power converters for the conversion from AC to DC or vice versa. This document is applicable to HVDC substations with line commutated converters, most commonly based on three-phase bridge (double way) connections (see Figure 2) in which unidirectional electronic valves, for example semiconductor valves, are used. For the thyristor valves, only the most important definitions are included in this document. A more comprehensive list of HVDC valve terminology is given in IEC 60700-2. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - 40 terms and definitions have been amended and 31 new terms and definitions have been added mainly on converter units and valves, converter operating conditions, HVDC systems and substations and HVDC substation equipment; - a new Figure 13 on capacitor commutated converter configurations has been added.

Transport d'énergie en courant continu à haute tension (CCHT) - Vocabulaire

IEC 60633:2019 est disponible sous forme de IEC 60633:2019 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente.IEC 60633:2019 définit les termes relatifs aux systèmes de transport de puissance en courant continu à haute tension (CCHT), et aux postes CCHT utilisant des convertisseurs électroniques de puissance pour la conversion du courant alternatif en courant continu ou inversement. Le présent document est applicable aux postes CCHT avec des convertisseurs commutés par le réseau, fondés le plus souvent sur le schéma en pont triphasé (deux voies) (voir Figure 2) dans lequel des valves électroniques unidirectionnelles, comme les valves à semiconducteurs, sont utilisées. Pour les valves à thyristors, seules les définitions les plus importantes sont incluses dans le présent document. Une liste plus complète de la terminologie des valves CCHT est donnée dans l’IEC 60700-2. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: - 40 termes et définitions ont été modifiés et 31 nouveaux termes et définitions ont été ajoutés principalement pour les unités de conversion et les valves, les conditions de fonctionnement du convertisseur, les systèmes et postes CCHT et les équipements des postes CCHT; - une nouvelle Figure 13 portant sur les configurations à convertisseurs commutés a été ajoutée.

Visokonapetostni enosmerni prenos (HVDC) - Slovar (IEC 60633:2019)

Ta standard določa izraze za visokonapetostne enosmerne (HVDC) sisteme prenosa moči in visokonapetostne enosmerne naprave, ki uporabljajo elektronske močnostne pretvornike za pretvorbo izmeničnega toka v enosmerni tok in obratno. Ta dokument se uporablja za visokonapetostne enosmerne naprave z vodovno komutiranimi pretvorniki, ki običajno temeljijo na povezavah trifaznega mostu (dvosmernih) (glej sliko 2), v katerem so uporabljene enosmerne elektronke, npr. polprevodniške elektronke. Za tiristorske elektronke so v tem dokumentu vključene samo najpomembnejše definicije. Obsežnejši seznam terminologije za visokonapetostne enosmerne elektronke je podan v standardu IEC 60700-2.
