P1277 - Standard General Requirements and Test Code for Dry-Type and Oil-Immersed Smoothing Reactors and for Dry-Type Converter Reactors for DC Power Transmission

The purpose of this standard is to provide those in the HVDC industry, manufacturers and "end users", a document that defines and specifies the electrical, mechanical and physical requirements of dry-type and oil-immersed smoothing reactors for HVDC (high voltage direct current) applications. Furthermore the document defines and specifies electrical, mechanical and physical requirements of dry-type converter reactors used for voltage sourced HVDC converters (VSC HVDC) which are located at the converter arms and loaded with DC and AC current. Test code is also defined and specifiedThe scope of this standard is the definition and specification of the functional requirements and test code for dry-type and oil-immersed smoothing reactors and dry-type converter reactors for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power transmission. This standard only applies to smoothing reactors for dc transmission and converter reactors for dc transmission located at the converter arms.
