A novel mutually commutated converter (MCC) system consisting of a voltage source converter (VSC) and a cycloconverter connected by a medium-frequency (MF) transformer is adapted for the power collection and conversion in large wind farms. Different modulation strategies based on space vectors are described and evaluated with regard to the very restrictive constraints on the modulation and commutation of the thyristor valves in the cycloconverter. This paper shows that a feasible and effective modulation strategy can be found in order to provide the desired reference voltage vector during every single modulation interval and under all operating conditions. The proposed current clamping control strategy is based on stopping the gate pulses of the conducting thyristor valve during a certain dead-time whenever the current in the corresponding phase leg becomes zero.
