|power = converter|
|A device to convert power between alternative and direct current often, but not only, over high voltage networks|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
A converter is a device allowing the power transmission between alternative networks and direct current (HVDC) networks.
They are often located in converter substation (605-01-07) comprises an HVDC converter device operating at high voltage.
How to map
Add a node or area at the location of the converter and tag it with power=converter and, if known, with the additional keys detailed below. Typically a converter is placed in a dedicated building called valve hall. In this case add all tags to the building.
|power||converter||Defines this node or area as an HVDC converter. Typically the converter building (valve hall) should get this tag.||mandatory|
|converter||<type of converter>||Type of converter.||recommended|
|voltage||<operating voltage>||Voltage at which the converter is operated||recommended|
|location||<location>||Physical location of the converter. The default value is indoor||recommended|
|operator||<cable operator>||Name of the company which operates this power converter||recommended|
|phases||<number of phases>||Number of different phase on the alternative side of the converter||recommended|
|poles||<number of poles>||Number of poles on the direct side of the converter||recommended|
|frequency||<operating frequency>||Given frequency in Hertz at which the power converter is operating on its alternative side||optional|
|rating||<rating>||Rating in MVA at which the converter is transmuting power||optional|
|name||<name>||Name of this power converter.||optional|
|ref||<reference>||Reference of this power converter||optional|
|converter||llc||A line commutated converter (LCC) uses thyristor based valves and is the most common type. This is the default value.|
|vsc||A newer type is the transistor-based voltage source converter (VSC).|
|back-to-back||A back-to-back converter couples two AC networks that are not synchronous or operate at different frequencies. There is no external DC power transmission link|
