HVDC VSC technology has developed extremely quickly and offers many attractive alternatives over the more mature LCC HVDC technology. This introduction to VSC presents the basic VSC system configurations. The operation of VSC technology, VSC control systems, including the flexibility of VSC convertors control systems, as well as a comparison of VSC and LCC HVDC technologies will be discussed. As the simulation of VSC MMC technology presents several EMT simulation challenges, the current status of simulation and model development will be presented. A sample of simulation results discussing the unique issues for start-up and DC line recovery for VSC systems will also be introduced. Who Should Attend This presentation is an introduction to VSC technology. The target audience is broad and aimed for anyone associated with power system and HVDC transmission. While the topic is technical in nature and directed towards power system engineers, system regulators, system and renewable energy developers, and power system operators would benefit from understanding some VSC HVDC fundamentals
