Abstract

The paper presents a detail comparison between two voltage source converter high voltage dc transmission systems, the first is based on neutral point-clamped (also known as HVDC-Light) and the second is based on innovative modular multilevel converter (known as HVDC-Plus). The comparison focuses on the reliability issues of both technologies such as fault ride-through capability and control flexibility. To address these issues, neutral point-clamped and three-level modular converters are considered in both stations of the dc transmission system, and several operating conditions are considered, including, symmetrical and asymmetrical faults. Computer simulation in Matlab-Simulink environment has been used to confirm the validity of the results.
