"Current source converters (CSCs) present the desirable characteristics of inherent load and converter short-circuits protection. Six-switch (fully controllable) CSCs are used in applications requiring the flexibility and performance, which is lacking in more affordable phase-controlled SCR-based CSCs," scientists in Montreal, Canada report.
"Hybrid CSC (HCSCs) with both SCRs and force-commutated switches usually offer a compromise solution regarding cost and performance. This paper discusses the use of space vector modulation (SVM) techniques to enhance the performance of a bidirectional three-SCR four-switch HCSC. The main challenge is to generate the gating signals...
