Abstract

A method of calculation is given with a computer program to perform the calculations. The effect of critical system and valve parameters on turn- on overvoltages is shown through results of calculations for a representative thyristor valve. The techniques presented are a powerful tool for valve design, and for optimization of system and valve parameters. Paper 71 TP 179- PWR.
