A Commutation Failure Suppression Control Method Based on the Controllable Operation Region of Hybrid Dual-Infeed HVDC System
AbstractWith the increased use of high voltage direct current (HVDC) systems, line commutated converters (LCC-HVDC) and voltage source converters (VSC-HVDC) tend to feed into AC systems over short electrical distances. The flexible power control of VSC-HVDC systems provides an effective approach to suppress the commutation failure of LCC-HVDC systems. A suppression method, based on a controllable operation region, is proposed in this study to reduce the probability of commutation failure in a hybrid dual-infeed HVDC system. First, the quantitative transient reactive power control requirement of VSC-HVDC inverter that could fulfill the suppression control boundary condition of commutation failure was analyzed. Given the maximum current constraint of the VSC-HVDC inverter and the primary frequency modulation constraint of the sending-end grid, a controllable operation region of the hybrid dual-infeed HVDC system was proposed. Furthermore, a commutation failure suppression control method, based on the controllable operation region, was proposed to mitigate continuous commutation failure. Finally, the validity and accuracy of the proposed method was verified by the simulation of PSCAD/EMTDC. The proposed control method can realize reasonable use of the reactive power control capability of the VSC-HVDC system, which effectively improves immunity to commutation failure of the LCC-HVDC system under grid fault.
