Power flow control in multiterminal HVdc (MTdc) grids is essential to restrict operation within permissible limits. A current flow controller (CFC) can achieve this. In this paper, the modeling, control, and simulation of resistive, RC-circuit-based, and capacitive CFCs is carried out. CFC prototypes have been developed and an MTdc grid test-rig has been employed for experimental validation. Results show that all devices achieve an effective power flow management. The impact of CFC deployment in future MTdc grids is assessed on droop-controlled converters. A voltage compensation-based method is proposed to minimize power deviations during unscheduled line current control. A protection scheme has been assessed under faults.
