Abstract

This paper presents results from the KIC InnoEnergy project: Generic DC grid off-line and real-time simulation models and tools (Action 2.1, Subtask 2.1.1). The work reported here is focused on the development of a generic voltage source converter (VSC) model and its control schemes. Different test systems were designed and implemented in simulation tools and an experimental platform to verify the proposed generic model. Consistent simulation and emulation performances indicate that the generic model and its control schemes are applicable for VSC-HVDC operation, and thus, they can facilitate further research and development in DC grids.
