Abstract

Interconnection of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission systems to a weak AC grid has been a challenge in recent years. The main target of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of the “converter control” approaches for: (1) the Line Commutated Converter (LCC)-based HVDC and (2) the forced commutated converter-based HVDC systems in weak AC grids. The control architecture for each HVDC technology (forced commutated and line commutated) is included. The stability limitations associated with HVDC systems, including LCC-HVDC, Voltage Source Converter (VSC)-based HVDC, and the Current Source Converter (CSC)-based HVDC, are elaborated. Moreover, the most recent control approaches for possible integration of LCC-HVDC and VSC-HVDC to very weak AC grids are introduced. Finally, the reliability modeling for each HVDC technology in weak AC grid integration is included for corrective and preventive reliability analysis.
