Benchmark of a Three-Terminal VSC-HVDC System in PowerFactory

Dynamic Simulation

This white paper documents the implementation of a detailed EMT model of a three terminal HVDC system using 2-Level Voltage Source Converters (VSC) in PowerFactory, and compares the simulation results against PSCAD® and MatLab/Simulink®.

This work is intended for PowerFactory users who want to learn about EMT models of power electronic devices in the software, their level of modelling detail, and the accuracy of the simulation results when compared to other tools.
