Summary

The development of power semiconductors with greater ratings and improved characteristics has meant that the power industry has become more willing to develop new converter configurations. These new configurations take advantage of the higher controllability and switching frequencies of the new devices. The next few years will decide which of the proposed technologies will dominate future power transmission systems.

Flexible Power Transmission is a comprehensive guide to the high voltage direct current (HVDC) options available, helping the reader to make informed decisions for designing future power transmission systems. The book includes:

  • a full description of the principles and components in existing converter technology, as well as alternative proposals for self-commutating conversion; A review of the state of power semiconductors suited to HVDC transmission and present proposals for multi-level HVDC transmission.
  • a detailed overview of the flexible HVDC methods for improving controllability and increasing power transfer capability in electrical power systems.
  • up-to-date information on thyrisistor-based HVDC technology.
  • coverage of new pulse width modulation (PWM) transmission technology and multi-level voltage source conversion (VSC) and current source conversion (CSC).

An excellent reference for professional power engineers, Flexible Power Transmission is also a useful guide for power system researchers as well as lecturers and students in power systems and power electronics disciplines.

Author Biography

Jos Arrillaga is a very experienced author, now an Emeritus Professor from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He has written 10 books, including 5 for Wiley on the topic of electrical power systems, such as Power System Harmonics, 2nd Edition (Wiley, 2003), Computer Modelling of Electrical Power Systems 2nd Edition (Wiley 2001) and High Voltage Direct Current Transmission (IEE, 1998). He has also written over 350 journal and conference papers. During the course of his career he has supervised around 50 PhD and 60 MSc/ME theses, most of them on the subject of high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission, and he has also participated and convened several working groups. In 1997 he was awarded the Uno Lamm medal for outstanding contributions to HVDC transmission and he was in the New Years Honours list as a member of the New Zealand order of Merit.
