This guide specifies the basic norms for protection and control equipment of High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission systems that have the voltage range up to and including 800 kV. It also defines and specifies requirements for control and protection equipment used in the design, manufacturing, research and testing of HVDC control and protection equipment. These guidelines apply to the control and protection equipment for LCC (line commutated converter) HVDC systems with the main circuit structure of one 12-pulse converter or two series 12-pulse converters per station pole. This guidance can also be used as reference for HVDC applications with other topologies like back-to-back links and parallel converter systems.

IEEE Guide for Establishing Basic Requirements for High-Voltage Direct-Current Transmission Protection and Control Equipment
The ac/dc substation control equipment, pole control equipment, protection equipment, and auxiliary secondary equipment of high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission systems are the focus of this guide. Based on analyzing the existing HVDC transmission projects, specifications for structure, configuration, performance and test of HVDC control and protection equipment, which could be applied to HVDC transmission system with the voltage range up to and including 800 kV are provided in this guide.
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
