An HVDC converter is an electronic device that converts High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) to High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) and vice versa. A complete HVDC system includes minimum one converter operating as a rectifier (converts AC to DC) and one operating as an inverter (converts DC to AC). These systems are increasingly being installed by regulators for transmitting bulk current over long distance.
