High Voltage Direct Current Transmission: Converters, Systems and DC Grids

High Voltage Direct Current Transmission guides the reader through all HVDC technologies, including LCC (line-commutated converter), two-level VSC (voltage source converter), and VSC HVDC based on modular multilevel converters (MMC) for an in-depth understanding of converters, system level design, operating principles, and modeling. Written in a tutorial style, this book also describes the key principles of design, control, protection, and operation of DC transmission grids, which will be substantially different from the practice with AC transmission grids.

The first dedicated reference to the latest HVDC technologies and DC grid developments, this book is an essential resource for graduate students and researchers as well as engineers and professionals working on the design, modeling, and operation of DC grids and HVDC.

Key features:

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of LCC, VSC, and (half and full bridge) MMC-based VSC technologies and DC transmission grids
  • Presents phasor and dynamic analytical models for each HVDC technology and DC grids
  • Includes HVDC protection, studies of DC and AC faults, and system-level studies of AC-DC interactions and impact on AC grids for each HVDC technology
  • Companion website hosts Simulink and Simscape Electrical models with examples for all HVDC topologies
