MULTI-TERMINAL DIRECT-CURRENT GRIDS: MODELING, ANALYSIS, AND CONTROL
Wiley Press, ISBN: 978-1-118-72910-6, 2014.

Nilanjan Chaudhuri, Balarko Chaudhuri, Rajat Majumder, AMIRNASER YAZDANI
A multi-terminal DC (MTDC) grid interconnecting multiple AC systems and offshore energy sources (e.g. wind farms) across the nations and continents would allow effective sharing of intermittent renewable resources and open market operation for secure and cost-effective supply of electricity. However, such DC grids are unprecedented with no operational experience. Despite lots of discussions and specific visions for setting up such MTDC grids particularly in Europe, none has yet been realized in practice due to two major technical barriers: the lack of proper understanding about the interaction between a MTDC grid and the surrounding AC systems; and the commercial unavailability of efficient DC side fault current interruption technology for conventional voltage sourced converter systems.
