Abstract

This paper introduces the use of a diode-based HVdc rectifier for the integration of a large off-shore Wind Power Plant (WPP) to an existing HVdc VSC-based grid. A HVdc voltage droop control has been proposed to minimize the power line losses. The system exhibits good response to WPP black-start operarion, rectifier breaker trip and reclosure, and short-circuit ride through at the on-shore ac-grid. The technical feasibility of the proposed topology has been validated by means of detailed PSCAD simulation using frequency dependent parameters for cable modeling.
