Abstract

Direct current transmission based on Voltage Source Converters (VSC-HVDC) has a number of advantages compared with traditional HVDC systems. However, VSC-HVDC systems are subjected to high short circuit currents due to faults in the DC line, which may contribute negatively to the dissemination and advances of this technology. In this context, this paper analyzes the impact of superconducting fault current limiters on the system response due to faults in the DC line. An effective model for fault limiters is proposed, aiming at limiting the fault current to values below the short circuit withstand capability of DC breakers. The results show the effectiveness of the method and the advantages of using superconducting materials to minimize the impact of faults on VSC-HVDC lines.
