A novel simple technology for power switching in HVDC system

Abstract

In this paper, a novel simple power switching method for dc switching devices is proposed to apply to HVDC system of more than 380 V DC. The method extends and extinguishes an arc between electrical contacts when opening power circuit. In addition, the power circuit can be disconnected even if the current direction reverses. The method is composed simply by… (More)
