Title: AN ELECTRICAL ASSEMBLY COMPRISING A CHAIN-LINK CONVERTER
Abstract:
An electrical assembly (50) comprises a chain-link converter (24) which includes a plurality of chain-link sub-modules (28). Each of the chain-link sub-modules (28) is operable to provide a voltage source. Moreover, each of the chain-link sub-modules (28) is provided with a visual indicator (52). The electrical assembly (50) includes a controller (56) which is configured to selectively operate each of the visual indicators (52) to present a respective mapping visual signal. The electrical assembly (50) additionally includes an image receiving device (60) which is configured to receive the respective mapping visual signal. The electrical assembly (50) also includes a processor (64) which is operatively coupled to the image receiving device (60). The processor (64) is configured to receive and process the respective mapping visual signal received by the image receiving device (60) so as to create a map of a spatial arrangement of the chain-link sub-modules (28).
