The design and operational testing of valves for the SVC (static Var compensator) to be installed at Kemps Creek substation in Australia are discussed. The most important design principles and features of the thyristor modules are given. Operational tests carried out on the thyristor modules are described; for this test program, noteworthy test circuits have been set up to perform both TSR (thyristor switched reactor) and TSC (thyristor switched capacitor) fault current tests with high test values and special waveforms. Test results and test circuits are presented
