HVDC transmission systems are becoming increasingly popular when compared to conventional AC transmission methods. HVDC voltage source converters (VSC) can offer advantages over traditional HVDC current source converter topologies; as such, it is expected that HVDC-VSCs will be further exploited with the growth of HVDC transmission. This paper presents the DC fault ride through capability and new STATCOM modes of operation for a recently published alternating arm voltage source converter (AAC) intended for the HVDC market. Operation of the converter during a local terminal to terminal short circuit of the DC-Link is demonstrated; additionally, operation of the converter as a STATCOM during the fault is also demonstrated.
