Gomis-Bellmunt, O., Liang, Jun ORCID:, Ekanayake, Janaka Bandara ORCID:, King, Rosemary and Jenkins, Nicholas ORCID: 2011. Topologies of multiterminal HVDC-VSC transmission for large offshore wind farms. Electric Power Systems Research 81 (2) , pp. 271-281. 10.1016/j.epsr.2010.09.006

Topologies of multiterminal HVDC-VSC transmission systems for large offshore wind farms are investigated. System requirements for multiterminal HVDC are described, particularly the maximum power loss allowed in the event of a fault. Alternative control schemes and HVDC circuit topologies are reviewed, including the need for HVDC circuit breakers. Various topologies are analyzed and compared according to a number of criteria: number and capacity of HVDC circuits, number of HVDC circuit breakers, maximum power loss, flexibility, redundancy, lines utilization, need for offshore switching platforms and fast communications.
