Deciding Factor for Selection of HVDC over HVAC Transmission

This is a famous question which most of the people ask to an Electrical Engineer that “Suppose we are setting up a power plant so shall we use HVDC or HVAC Transmission?” In this post I am going to answer this question with examples which will help to clear the concept. We have already seen … Read more Deciding Factor for Selection of HVDC over HVAC Transmission

HVDC Circuit Breaker – Brief Description

In AC circuit breakers/ arc extinction is achieved at the natural current zero of the AC waveform used. But in DC circuit breakers / natural zero of voltage and current is not available as both are continuously available. Thus for extinction of an arc, artificial current zero is required to be introduced. Such an artificial … Read more HVDC Circuit Breaker – Brief Description
