Newly developed VSC-HVDC systems are reaching power levels of up to 1000 MW. At this power level, the nonminimum phase behavior of the VSC-HVDC systems' dc plant becomes a threat to the stability of the direct voltage for fast dc control-loop dynamics. This paper presents a novel compensation scheme, called RHP-zero shifting+damping, designed to deal with the nonminimum phase dynamics of the dc plant by adding additional compensation loops to the current controller of the VSC-HVDC system. The compensation scheme can work along with linear controllers and allows the closed-loop bandwidth of the direct voltage controller to be increased without affecting the direct voltage stability of high-power VSC-HVDC systems. As a result, the direct voltage variations are significantly reduced during power changes in the ac or dc network. The performance of the compensation scheme is evaluated through simulations and corroborated in a 1-kW experimental test bed.
