This International Standard applies to self-commutated converter valves, for use in a three-phase bridge voltage sourced converter (VSC) for high voltage d.c. power transmission or as part of a back-to-back link. It is restricted to electrical type and production tests.
The tests specified in this standard are based on air insulated valves. For other types of valves, the test requirements and acceptance criteria must be agreed.
