Self-commutated current source converter with multi-level current reinjection
Perera, Lasantha B. (2009) Self-commutated current source converter with multi-level current reinjection. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology, 54, pp. 276-281.
The multi-level current reinjection concept described in literature is well-known to produce high quality AC current waveforms in high power and high voltage self-commutating current source converters. This paper proposes a novel reinjection circuitry which is capable of producing a 7-level reinjection current. It is shown that this reinjection current effectively increases the pulse number of the converter to 72. The use of PSCAD/EMTDC simulation validates the functionality of the proposed concept illustrating its effectiveness on both AC and DC sides of the converter.
