TL;DR: In this article, the application of thyristor converters to the excitation of large generators as shunt connected solid-state exciters is described and some important exciter design details are given.
Abstract: The application of thyristor converters to the excitation of large generators as shunt connected solid-state exciters is described. Considerations important during the planning stage are discussed and some important exciter design details are given. The importance of the topic, control of power system stability by adjustment of generator excitation, is highlighted by reference to many other papers.

TL;DR: In this article, brushless thyristor excitation systems for large synchronous generators are described, and the electrical and mechanical advantages of such systems are discussed, as well as the results of a digital computer comparison with other forms of excitation.
Abstract: This paper shows how brushless thyristor excitation systems for large synchronous generators are being evolved in the authors' organisation, outlines the electrical and mechanical advantages that accrue, and includes some results of a digital computer comparison of such systems with other forms of excitation.

TL;DR: In this article , the authors defined elements and commonly used components in excitation systems and defined the definition of excitation control systems applied to synchronous machines, and presented one-line block diagrams of typical excitation system.
Abstract: Defined in this standard are elements and commonly used components in excitation systems. Also contained are definitions for excitation systems applied to synchronous machines. An included annex contains one-line block diagrams of some typical excitation systems. These are presented to illustrate the defined terminology referenced in this standard and clarify the understanding of the excitation control system.
