Generating of high direct currents
Converter: Twelve-pulse rectifier with AC side phase control modulator.
Nominal continous power: 1.5 MW
Current-voltage-combinations for nominal power:
|current I in A||voltage U in V|
The phase control modulator allows the setting of the current and voltage range below the hyperbola
P = U ·I = 1.5 MW = const.
Short duration operation: Twice the current is possible for up to 15 s
Ripple: ≤ 1 % (of set current)
Static precision of current control: ± 0.1 %
Possible use and research applications
- Arcing and plasma testing for various applications
- Research of thermal effects of arc flashes on plastics used in substations or causing of fire through arc flashes
- Testing of devices for DC systems (tramway, subway, railways, HVDC transmission)
- Development of a DC switches for superconducting magnets
