Modeling, Stability Analysis and Control of Large-Scale Renewable Energy Base Delivered via HVDC System


To achieve the goal of energy transition and establish a modern energy system that is clean, low-carbon, safe, efficient, and sustainable, rapid development has been witnessed in recent years in renewable energy. For example, large-scale photovoltaic power plants are being constructed in desert areas, extensive offshore wind power bases are being established in deep-sea regions, and energy islands are being set up on offshore islands. Thanks to its excellent control characteristics, high-capacity transmission capability, as well as lower transmission losses, HVDC technology has become the preferred solution for long-distance transmission of large-scale renewable energy. However, challenges arise from the remote geographical locations of renewable energy bases and the scarcity of local synchronous generator sources, leading to a weak power grid. The integration of renewable energy generation through inverters introduces distinct power electronic characteristics in the renewable energy base grid. These factors induce a fundamental shift in the stability mechanism compared to power grids dominated by synchronous generators, which introduces higher requirements for the integration of renewable energy and the stability control of the grid.
This special session aims to bring together researchers, engineers, and experts to discuss and share advancements in modeling, stability analysis, and control strategies relevant to the integration of large-scale renewable energy delivered via HVDC systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Modeling techniques for large-scale renewable energy systems.
• Stability analysis of power systems incorporating renewable energy sources and HVDC links.
• Control strategies for enhancing the stability and performance of the systems.
• Case studies and simulations showcasing successful implementations of large-scale renewable energy via HVDC.
