This part of IEC 60700 applies to thyristor valves with metal oxide surge arresters directly connected between the valve terminals, for use in a line commutated converter 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 can be agreed.
