Simulation of transient phenomena in high voltage direct-current converter systems Bhattacharya, Subroto
In this thesis models for the simulation of transient phenomena in high voltage direct-current systems are developed. The new converter model is versatile and the solution algorithm is free from numerical oscillations. A new generic inverter control described in this thesis is based on a predictive approach. Steady-state and transient simulations of two-terminal and multi-terminal (i.e., a parallel converter system) high voltage direct-current systems are carried out using the new converter system model. Comparison between the two-terminal transient simulation results and the high voltage direct-current simulator outputs shows good agreement. An alternating-current/direct-current initialization procedure for the Electromagnetic Transients Program (EMTP) has been investigated and a novel initialization algorithm has been suggested in this thesis.
