Down-to-Earth Theory: Hybrid DC Breaker

Jan. 23, 2018
Gene Wolf recommends video with ABB regarding HVDC theory.

This month, the feature column discusses the DC grid, and the History column looks at the hybrid DC breaker. So, it may be a good time to look at a little theory about that. When I took the European HVDC tour discussed in the History column, I spent a day with Claes Rytoff visiting ABB’s facilities in Switzerland and discussing HVDC theory. It was a very enjoyable day and recently, I found a video interview with Claes discussing the DC breaker. The video is below – enjoy.
