What is HVDC system simulation?

High voltage direct current (HVDC) systems play an important role in modern energy grids. This paper focuses on simulation and analysis of HVDC transmission system for steady and transient state conditions and discussing about protection scheme. The HVDC system is implemented in 12 pulse bridge converter arrangements.

What are the simulation tools available for the simulation of HVDC systems?

Varieties of models of HVDC have been developed and integrated in the well-recognized digital simulation software such as EMTDC/PSCAD, BPA, MATLAB, and PSS/E.

What are the applications of HVDC system simulator?

Applications of HVDC technologies include water crossings, asynchronous interconnections (back-to- back), bulk power transfers including access to remote renewables (point-to-point), transmission in areas with severely restricted ROWs, and HVDC networked grids (multi-terminal).

Which equipment is used in HVDC system?

Thyristor valves are the most important converter station equipment and the other main equipment include converter transformers, dc reactor, harmonic filtering equipment, control equipment and reactive power compensation equipment.

What are the advantages of HVDC transmission?

HVDC can expand the energy networks, making them more stable. HVDC is more environmentally friendly than AC, providing more energy per square metre over greater distances more efficiently than AC systems, as well as lower losses and less space requirements.

Which is not advantage of HVDC system?

Disadvantages of HVDC Transmission The terminal equipments require large MVAR. It generates harmonics which produces interference with communication lines. Filters are required to minimise the harmonics, thereby increasing the cost of terminal stations.

Which converter is used in HVDC?

An HVDC converter converts electric power from high voltage alternating current (AC) to high-voltage direct current (HVDC), or vice versa. HVDC is used as an alternative to AC for transmitting electrical energy over long distances or between AC power systems of different frequencies.

What are the main components of the HVDC system?

Main components of HVDC system are as under:

  • DC line inductors,
  • harmonic filters,
  • converter transformers,
  • a reactive power source,
  • ground electrodes,
  • a microwave communication link between the converter stations.

What are limitations of HVDC?

Disadvantages of high voltage DC transmission : Expenses inverters with limited overload capacity. HVDC is less reliable. IN HVDC very accurate and lossless power flows through DC link. The disadvantages of HVDC are in conversion, switching, control, maintenance.

What are the disadvantages of HVDC?


HVDC Transmission System HVAC Transmission System
Low losses. Losses are high due to the skin effect and corona discharge
Better Voltage Regulation and Control ability. Voltage regulation and Control ability are less.
Transmit more power over a longer distance. Transmit less power compared to an HVDC system.

Why do we need HVDC?

HVDC allows power transmission between AC transmission systems that are not synchronized. Since the power flow through an HVDC link can be controlled independently of the phase angle between source and load, it can stabilize a network against disturbances due to rapid changes in power.

Why thyristor is used in HVDC system?

This thyristor, which is a silicon-based power semiconductor device, is the heart of the converter station, and really the heart of HVDC transmissions, because without them, there are no conversions, and no HVDC transmissions.

What are the types of HVDC link?

The high voltage dc links may be classified into: 1. Monopolar Link 2. Bipolar Link 3. Homopolar Link.

What is the advantage of HVDC system?

Where is HVDC used in India?

The HVDC Rihand–Delhi is a HVDC connection between Rihand and Dadri (near Delhi) in India, put into service in 1990. It connects the 3,000 MW coal-based Rihand Thermal Power Station in Uttar Pradesh to the northern region of India….

HVDC Rihand–Delhi
Technical information
Type overhead line
Type of current HVDC

What voltage is HVDC transmission?

Most HVDC links use voltages between 100 kV and 800 kV.

What are the limitations of HVDC system?

What is valve in HVDC?

The modern HVDC converter valve is air insulated, water cooled and suspended indoors in a controlled environment. The four single valve functions connected to the same AC phase in the 12-pulse bridge are mounted on top of each other in a quadruple valve arrangement.

What is pole in HVDC system?

The HVDC system pole is the part of an HVDC system consisting of all the equipment in the HVDC substation. It also interconnects the transmission lines which during normal operating condition exhibit a common direct polarity with respect to earth.
