Protection of MTDC grids

For the transmission of bulk power and the reinforcement of the grid for the insertion of renewable sources, the recourse to HVDC is mandatory. Beyond a certain distance, high voltage AC transmission becomes less advantageous than DC. As depicted, the transmission of power through a conductor is limited for a given distance in AC (versus…

Resiliency of Distributed Control Schemes

As discussed in a previous post [1], distributed control schemes are perceived to be more suitable for future power networks than the centralized counterpart. However, designing such control schemes is more complex than that of the conventional centralized one. Particularly, a distributed control scheme requires communication and cooperation of the controllers, which inherently introduce additional…
