Modelling and Control of an Interline Current Flow Controller for Meshed HVDC Grids
This paper focuses on the modelling and control of an interline current flow controller (CFC) for meshed HVDC grids. The operation states of the CFC are presented, and an average model is derived. The average model is used to perform steady-state analysis on a 3-terminal meshed grid, showing the current change capabilities and the benefits on the operation area. The converter control is designed using a linearized model. The system performance of the CFC is tested by means of simulation in a 3-terminal grid and in a 5-terminal grid.
