varying operation conditions (i.e., mission profile), the justifications of using the associated mission profiles are still missed. This paper investigates the impact of mission profile data resolutions and electrical power modeling methods on the estimated lifetime of IGBT modules in an MMC for offshore wind power application. In a 30 MW MMC case study, an annual wind speed profile with a resolution of 1 s/data, 10 minute/data, and 1 hour/data are considered, respectively. A method to re-generate higher resolution wind speed data from lower resolution data is introduced as well. Based on the wind speed data, IEC 61400-12-1 power curve model and a wind speed-power stochastic model are compared as well. Five mission profile modeling scenarios are compared in terms of the predicted lifetime of the IGBT modules used in the MMC, resulting in significant differences. The study serves as a first step to quantify the impact of mission profile modeling on lifetime prediction, and to provide a guideline on mission profile collection for the presented application.
