Paper Presentation: Voltage source converter topology for HVDC grid connection of offshore wind farms
ABSTRACT-- Large offshore wind farms are recently emerging as promising alternative power Sources. Long distances between offshore generation and onshore distribution grid demand new solutions for their connection to the AC network.
HVDC systems based on voltage source converters (VSC) are a promising alternative to conventional AC transmission above a certain cable length. This paper presents a new VSC transmission topology for HVDC grid connection of offshore wind farms.
