This paper presents a reliability assessment of the HVDC converter transformer system (CTS) comparing different component models and configurations. The CTS model is based on the Markov modelling approach, which is shown to be well suited for these relatively small systems. The failure rate data in the models is based on statistical surveys by CIGRE. A number of scenarios are calculated in order to evaluate the impact of the availability of the CTS given different conditions. The result shows on the benefit in availability using a spare transformer, particularly at a close location of the HVDC station.
