Selective Wave-Front Based Protection Algorithm for MTDC Systems

  title={Selective Wave-Front Based Protection Algorithm for MTDC Systems},
  author={N. Johannesson and Staffan Norrga and C Wikstr{\"o}m},
Protection algorithms which can differentiate between different faults is a necessity for the reliable operation of multiterminal HVDC systems with multiple DC breakers. For selective detection by single-ended line protection algorithms, the current limiting reactors installed in series with the breaker at the opposite side of the line can be used for limiting the reach in the forward direction. In this paper, a further development on the idea of basing the detection on the incident traveling… CONTINUE READING
