Development and / or supply of a high speed bypass switch for high voltage DC applications.
The switch is part of every level in High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) and Static VAR compensator (SVC) multilevel converters.
Siemens Energy Management is a partner to develop and / or supply HVDC and SVC multilevel converters.
In HVDC and SVC converters many power modules are connected in series. To ensure a highly reliable and uninterrupted converter operation a device to bypass a failed power module is needed. The voltage level of every power module is given by available Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs). If a power module should fail a fast bypass switch has to be closed. The bypass switch remains closed after a single ignition.
Siemens Energy Management is seeking:
The specifications of the current bypass switch we use are:
