Future multi-terminal HVDC systems are expected to utilize dc voltage droop controllers and several control structures have been proposed in literature. This paper proposes a methodology to analyse the impact of various types of droop control structures using small-signal stability analysis considering all possible combinations of droop gains. The different control structures are evaluated by the active power transfer capability as a function of the droop gains, considering various possible stability margins. This reveals the flexibility and robustness against active power flow variations, due to disturbances for all the implementations. A case study analyzing a three terminal HVDC VSC-based grid with eight different kinds of droop control schemes points out that three control structures outperform the remaining ones. Additionally, a multi-vendor case is considered where the most beneficial combinations of control structures has been combined in order to find the best performing combination.
