High-voltage dc (HVDC) transmission based on the line-commutated converter (LCC) is the most established and widespread technology around the world. However, HVDC based on the voltage source converter (VSC) has emerged as the best option to integrate renewable energy sources, e.g., offshore wind farms. This work investigates the feasibility of using a conventional LCC-HVDC transmission in combination with a VSC to integrate offshore wind farms. Such integration results in a hybrid HVDC… Expand
