Abstract

A new method for controlling active power in HVDC grids has been tested on the meshed CIGRE B4 DC grid test system. The control strategy is based on the recently proposed undead-band droop control, which combines DC voltage and AC frequency droop. It provides sufficient roomm for optimisation for both normal and disturbed operation. Its main features are flexibility, reliability due to distributed control, easy expandability of the system and minimisation of communication needs. The control technique has been tested and its effectiveness has been verified to demonstrate its suitability for application in future meshed HVDC grids.
