This paper proposes an optimal design method of modular multilevel converter (MMC) levels to approach the reasonable compromise between accuracy and computational efficiency. The entire procedure is benchmarked by a Thévenin equivalent 451-level MMC model. First, the calculation method of the critical maximum simulation time step is proposed to faithfully… CONTINUE READING
