DC MOA Application and Test Technical Analysis


Article Preview

To achieve further optimization of resource utilization, HVDC power transmission project in the proportion of the state grid is growing and the range of applications are more widely. Due to the high cost of converter stations, properly design of DC MOA for DC system insulation coordination and reducing the cost are crucial. Through research and analysis of large amounts of data, applications and test technologies of DC MOA is in-depth expounded, It’s further deepened the staff’s understanding of the DC MOA, there are also some guidance and references to the repair and maintenance of DC MOA.
