This paper proposes a methodology to coordinate protection relays with a VSC-HVDC link for mitigating the occurrence of cascading failures in stressed power systems. The methodology uses a signal created from an evaluation of the relay's status and simplifications of certain system parameters. This signal is sent to a Central Control Unit (CCU) which determines corrective action in order to reduce the risk of cascading failures.
