Modelling of semiconductor losses of the Modular Multilevel Converter in EMTP
2016 (English)In: 2016 IEEE 17th Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics, COMPEL 2016, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
The development of controllable semiconductor switches and Voltage Source Converter (VSC) technologies is rapidly expanding the fields of applications of HVDC and FACTS in power systems. Recent developments in converter technology are focused on Modular Multilevel Converters (MMC). This article deals with loss modeling and its implementation in EMT-type software for three different types of MMC models. The 401-Level HVDC-MMC based on the INELFE project is used as a test case. The implementation is integrated into the EMTP software, so that no additional tools or software is needed.
