The worldwide trend in the evolution of high voltage thyristor valves is reviewed, using HVDC applications as an example. The key technologies involved are identified. It is shown that the move towards direct light triggered thyristors (LTT) is but the most recent step in a continuous effort to simplify high voltage thyristor valve technology and make it inherently more reliable
