  1. 1. Analysis of VSC-based HVDC systems

    Author : Georgios Stamatiou; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : HVDC; MMC; MTDC; Poor damping; Symbolic eigenvalue expressions; Droop control; Passivity Analysis; Net damping; Frequency Domain Analysis; VSC;

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis is to perform stability and control studies in the area of VSC-HVDC systems. A major part of the investigation focuses on the development of procedures, whose aim is to understand, explain and avoid poorly-damped conditions or instability that may appear due to dc-side resonances, which stem from the interaction of converters and passive elements in such systems.
