Sharing the same corridor of the HVAC and HVDC transmission lines can efficiently increase the power transfer capacity of the limited corridor and will be erected in East China. An accurate and efficient numerical analysis method for analyzing the ion-flow field of the ac-dc hybrid lines is helpful for engineering design. In this paper, an upwind finite volume-based algorithm for the solution of the ac-dc hybrid ion-flow field is proposed, which can take the influence of the space charges generated by corona into account. The electric field is solved by the charge simulation method and the finite-element method, while the advection and recombination effects of the space charges are solved by a time-dependent finite volume method. The reduced-scale ac-dc hybrid models are analyzed and the calculating results by the proposed approach in this paper have good agreements with the experimental ones in the literature and in this paper. Finally, the ground-level electric field and ion current density of the hybrid UHVAC and UHVDC transmission lines in parallel are analyzed, providing a reference for the engineering design.
