IEEE Recommended Practice for Thyristor Controlled Rectifiers for Traction Power Substation Applications

Design, manufacturing, and testing unique to the application of thyristor controlled power rectifiers for dc supplied transportation substation applications up to 1500 V dc nominal output is covered in this recommended practice. Both forward rectifier with power flow from ac to dc, and reversible rectifiers with bidirectional power flow are included; traction power substation rectifiers that are to be provided as part of a rectifier transformer unit or are provided separately are intended to be addressed. Application information and extensive definitions of related technical terms are included.
