With the development of offshore wind generation, the interest in cross-country connections is also increasing, which requires models to study their complex static and dynamic behaviors. This paper presents the mathematical modeling of an offshore wind farm integrated into a cross-country HVDC network forming a multi-terminal high-voltage DC (MTDC) network. The voltage source converter models were added with the control of active power, reactive power, frequency, and DC link voltages at appropriate nodes in the MTDC, resembling a typical cross-country multi-terminal type of HVDC scenario. The mathematical model for the network together with the controllers were simulated in MATLABTM and experimentally verified using a real-time digital simulator hardware setup. The resulting static and dynamic responses from the hardware setup agreed well with those from simulations of the developed models.
