Abstract

The paper reports the investigation of the dynamic operation of novel 24-pulse HVDC transmission system for eliminating the 11th and 13th harmonic currents from spreading out to the AC system and improving power quality. The complete simulation of the 24-pulse HVDC system is performed using the MATLAB/Simulink. Simulation results show that the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of AC system in 12-pulse system is 8.51%. Whereas, the THD of AC system in 24-pulse system is 4.49%. The waveforms of AC current have improved without employing 11th and 13th tuned filters at AC systems.
