Abstract

This paper looks at the protection implications of introducing fully controllable, embedded, medium voltage dc (MVDC) power electronic links into power distribution networks. Studies have indicated, protection notwithstanding, that embedded MVDC can be used to provide economically attractive, enhanced capacity and control of power flows. Through a series of simulation studies, the impact on distance protection schemes (in terms of reach and response time) resulting from the introduction of a controlled MVDC link have been examined for symmetrical faults. The paper also considers under what conditions a dc side fault can be observed from the ac grid. A series of recommendations for system integrators are made.
