Terminology for voltage-sourced converters (VSC) for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) systems

IEC 62747:2014 defines terms for the subject of self-commutated voltage-sourced converters used for transmission of power by high voltage direct current (HVDC). The standard is written mainly for the case of application of insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) in voltage sourced converters (VSC) but may also be used for guidance in the event that other types of semiconductor devices which can both be turned on and turned off by control action are used. Line-commutated and current-sourced converters for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power transmission systems are specifically excluded from this standard.

Terminologie relative aux convertisseurs de source de tension (VSC) des systèmes en courant continu à haute tension (CCHT)

L'IEC 62747:2014 définit les termes relatifs aux convertisseurs de source de tension autocommutés utilisés pour le transport d'énergie en courant continu à haute tension (CCHT). La norme a été essentiellement élaborée pour l'application des transistors bipolaires à grille isolée (IGBT) des convertisseurs de source de tension (VSC), mais elle peut également être utilisée comme guide en cas d'utilisation d'autres dispositifs à semiconducteur pouvant être activés ou désactivés par une action de commande. Les convertisseurs commutés par le réseau et les convertisseurs à source de courant des systèmes de transport d'énergie en courant continu à haute tension (CCHT) sont exclus de la présente norme.

Terminologija za napetostne pretvornike (VSC) za visokonapetostne enosmerne sisteme (IEC 62747:2014)

Standard EN IEC 62747 določa izraze za predmet napetostnih pretvornikov z lastno komutacijo, ki se uporabljajo za prenos moči z visokonapetostnim enosmernim tokom (HVDC). Ta standard je napisan zlasti za primer uporabe bipolarnih tranzistorjev z izoliranimi vrati (IGBT) v napetostnih pretvornikih (VSC), vendar se lahko uporablja tudi za navodila v primeru, da se uporabljajo druge vrste polprevodniških naprav, ki jih je s kontrolnim ukrepom mogoče vklopiti in izklopiti. Pretvorniki z linijsko komutacijo in tokovni pretvorniki za visokonapetostne enosmerne sisteme za prenos moči so izrecno izključeni iz tega standarda.
