Abstract

As more and more VSC-HVDC links are planned and commissioned, interconnection of neighboring links or connection to an existing link becomes a feasible step towards secure and reliable multi-terminal DC (MTDC) transmission systems. Multi-vendor MTDC (MV-MTDC) operation is anticipated as an impact of this gradual DC grids development. In order to achieve certain operation conditions, DC grid controller needs to send specific control settings to individual converter station controls. One of the challenges in MV-MTDC transmission systems occurs in coordination of converters since different types of controller might exist in the same system. It is therefore important to identify the parameters required by the converter station controllers to ensure a smooth coordination. In this paper, different converter station controllers available in the literatures are categorized. Challenges of converter station control coordination are also discussed.
