An old concept proposed to double the pulse number of a line commutated converter and designated "dc-ripple reinjection," is made more effective by the use of self-commutating reinjection switches, such as GTO or IGCT. It is shown that the self-commutating reinjection switches can be controlled to force the thyristor valve currents to commutate independently from their respective line voltages. EMTDC-PSCAD simulation is used to verify that this effect adds reactive power controllability, as well as pulse multiplication, to the conventional thyristor converter.

8 citations in Web of Science®

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.
