I really don't know much about the technology. Conversion to DC is done at the Celilo Converter Station in The Dalles, Oregon, and conversion back to AC is done at the Sylmar Converter Station in Sylmar, California.

It seems to me that the conversion back to AC would be akin to a very, very big audio amplifier. Provide it high voltage, high current DC power, give it a 60Hz sine wave as "input" and output high voltage, high current AC power.

Interesting read. Here's a video of one of those Mercury rectifiers btw:
