Co-Simulation of Back-to-Back VSC Transmission System
Patabandi Maddumage, Chathura Jeevantha
With the increased complexity of modern power systems, it may be required more than one platform to do an intended study efficiently and accurately. This research was carried out to investigate the use of co-simulation in an application of power system. A back-to-back Voltage Source Converter (VSC) transmission system was modeled in PSCAD/EMTDC which is an Electro-Magnetic Type (EMT) software. Results were analyzed for some operating points of the system. Then the control system of the above system was modelled in MATLAB/SIMULINK while the rest of the system was modeled in PSCAD/EMTDC. Both of these systems were interfaced to obtain the complete system and results were analyzed under same operating points as the original PSCAD case.
