Three configurations of voltage source converter multi-terminal HVDC transmission for large offshore wind farms are studied. The voltage-current characteristics of the converters are shown and the operation of the converters with different power output from the wind farms is discussed. The control system is designed to achieve automatic coordination between the converters without the need of fast communication between them. The operation of the multi-terminal HVDC transmission with the control system is tested through simulations using PSCAD/EMTDC and through experiments on a three-terminal test rig. The simulation and experimental results show good agreement.
