At the Wuhan National High Magnetic Field Center, two 67.5-MW pulsed power supply units have been installed to energize long-pulse magnets. Each unit based on a 12-pulse converter consists of two 6.9 kV/1.2 kV (1.0 kV) cast coil transformers and two six-pulse rectifiers connected in series. The units are connected to a 100 MVA/185 MJ inertial energy storage motor-generator set and can operate independently as well as in parallel or in series. Each unit is designed to provide no-load voltages of 3.2 kV (2.7 kV) and full-load voltages of 2.7 kV (2.25 kV) at the rated current of 25 kA for a 3-s pulse once every half hour. After completion of various performance tests, the power supply commissioning started in October 2012. At present, the power supply has energized a long-pulse magnet more than 100 times to produce flat-top pulses at various field levels, including a 50-T field pulse with 100-ms flat-top duration. In this paper, the final design of the power supply components is described in detail. Testing and commissioning results of the power supply taken with a dummy load and a long-pulse magnet are also presented.
