On the analysis of the dc dynamics of multi-terminal VSC-HVDC systems using small signal modeling
Paper i proceeding, 2013
In this paper, an analysis of the dc dynamics of multiterminal VSC-HVDC systems using the small signal modeling method is presented. Usually, the VSC controllers are designed under the consideration that they operate independently of each other. However, the possible interactions among them and the dc grid should be studied, especially in multi-terminal topologies. In this paper, three VSC-HVDC systems are modeled and, after linearization, the eigenvalues of the system are calculated for different loading conditions. The results from this analysis are compared to those obtained from more detailed models using PSCAD. It is shown that the operating point, the gains of the direct-voltage controller and the cable dynamics have an impact on the system performance.
