This paper deals with multiterminal voltage source converter (VSC) HVDC transmission systems for the connection of offshore wind power plants to the main land ac grid. A droop-based control scheme is considered. The droop controllers have been designed base on a mixed sensitivity criterion by solving a convex optimization problem with linear matrix inequalities. The system is analyzed by means of simulations and experimentally in a scaled platform. Simulations show the control performance… CONTINUE READING
