The modular multilevel converter (MMC), originally proposed by Professor Marquardt, has made it practical to realize converters with ratings up to 1000 MW by using standard components developed for variable speed drives. With the power electronics packed into individual submodules, realizing a converter where the ac and dc voltages are under direct control… (More)
