Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) has many advantages for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission and to integrate renewable energy to the main grid. Recently, there are several MMC projects being planning or in development over the world. However, due to the fact that the MMC has a large number of sub-modules (SMs) and a sophisticated controller, there are high demands on simulation tools to validate its design. A digital real-time simulator can simulate the MMC system quickly and… CONTINUE READING
