Abstract

This paper proposes the use of a transformer-less DC-DC Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) topology, based on cascaded H-bridge converters, for power flow control in High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) grids used to connect off-shore wind power plants to on-shore grids. An energy based approach is used to regulate the DC voltage of H-bridge modules. Results for the operation of the DC-DC MMC supplying energy to a DC network and controlling the power flow in a HVDC system are presented.
