The Application of Water Cooling System of HVDC Converter StationBy Goaland Watertech
This whitepaper offers a detailed analysis of high voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) in water cooling.
The technology of HVDC thyristor valves is available in China since the mid-1980s and has been continually updated in line with international developments.
It is generally accepted that water is a very effective medium to remove heat losses from HVDC thyristor valves.
Water combines several characteristics which qualify it as a good coolant: high specific heat, high thermal conductivity, high heat transfer capability, low viscosity, and low density.
