The BritNed Interconnector is a new bipolar High Voltage DC power transmission project establishing the first HVDC link between Great Britain and the Netherlands. The new interconnection is rated to 1000 MW power for both directions and will go into commercial operation in the beginning of 2011. In this study, a power system stability analysis of the British and the Dutch power system including the new HVDC interconnection BritNed is performed. Focus is hereby on the save and reliable operation of both power systems, especially during faults and contingencies. Using the fast controllability of the HVDC, it is possible to enhance both power systems using special modulation functions of the BritNed HVDC.
