DC side harmonics and filtering in HVDC transmission systems


This Technical Brochure presents a comprehensive guide to all aspects of DC side harmonics and filtering for HVDC systems. Starting with an analysis of harmonic generation by both line-commutated and voltage-sourced converters, the Brochure discusses modeling techniques and provides an in-depth coverage of the vital aspect of inductive coupling to nearby telecommunication systems. Guidance is given regarding the specification of appropriate harmonic limits, including for DC grids, and  practical advice is provided regarding measurement techniques necessary to verify compliance. All aspects of DC filter design are discussed, including the specification of filter equipment. Closely related topics including DC side resonance and fundamental frequency coupling with AC power lines are also covered.
