A new self-commutated current source converter is proposed, based on the reinjection of multi-level dc current pulses via a GTO-switched multi-tapped interphase reactor. The ideal reinjection waveform for complete elimination of the harmonic content of the ac system side current is derived and a practical approximation proposed to increase the pulse number of the double-bridge converter to any multiple of twelve. A 48-pulse configuration is analyzed in detail to show the new concept effectiveness on both the ac and dc sides of the converter.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
