An HVDC converter station (or simply converter station) is a specialised type of substation which forms the terminal equipment for a high-voltage direct current transmission line. It converts direct current to alternating current or the reverse. Besides the converter itself, the station usually contains:
- three-phase alternating current switch gear
- capacitors or synchronous condensers for reactive power
- filters for harmonic suppression, and
- direct current switch gear

Famous quotes containing the word plant:
“It were as wise to cast a violet into a crucible that you might discover the formal principle of its colour and odour, as seek to transfuse from one language into another the creations of a poet. The plant must spring again from its seed, or it will bear no flowerand this is the burthen of the curse of Babel.”
—Percy Bysshe Shelley (17921822)
