High-voltage direct current (HVDC) grid technology is one technical solution that allows the connection of multiple offshore wind farms to one or more onshore connection points. However, there are a number of technical issues and challenges to be overcome in the construction of HVDC grids. This chapter introduces the AC hub concept and develops different economic functions to evaluate the frequency-cost dependence of AC hub components. It then investigates the control strategy need to operate the system at variable frequency. A standard frequency, 50 Hz or 60 Hz, can be used in an AC hub like an ordinary AC system. The voltage and frequency of an AC hub are established by the voltage-source converters (VSCs) of HVDC links. The AC hub without DC circuit breakers can maintain stability by rescheduling the power through variable frequency operation and reduction of wind power generation through frequency-responsive power reduction control.
