Recommended Practice for Thyristor Controlled Rectifiers for Traction Power Substation Applications
|Publication Date:||3 December 2020|
This recommended practice covers the design, manufacturing, and testing, of controlled semiconductor power rectifiers for dc traction power systems.
This recommended practice provides common terminology and standard design, manufacturing, and testing criteria specific to controlled rectifiers supplying power to traction power systems for use by manufacturers, specifiers, and users. Design architecture, calculation methods and limits, test methods, and acceptance criteria for controlled rectifiers shall be defined to allow for objective evaluation and acceptance of controlled rectifiers from different vendors.
