Impact of Grid Forming Power Converters on the Provision of Grid Services through VSC-HVdc Systems

High Voltage dc (HVdc) transmission systems have gained increased popularity as a flexible and efficient power transmission option with higher grid controllability. Widespread adoption of HVdc systems for interconnecting power systems and integrating large renewable energy generation facilities such as wind farms, has forced the power system to undergo a transition from a predominantly ac system into a hybrid ac-dc system, especially in the high voltage transmission grid. This paper attempts to provide an overview on the role of Voltage Source Converter based HVdc(VSC-HVdc) systems within the evolving power system as a grid services provider. Special attention is paid to discuss the impact of Grid Forming converter control approach on the provision of such services through VSC-HVdc systems.
