Since July 2014, Tian-Guang HVDC project happened the events of the converter valve abnormal breakover four times, which caused the main equipment overcurrent or overvoltage and seriously influenced the safe and stable operation of Tian-Guang HVDC project. In order to identify the cause of the converter valve abnormal breakover, the theoretical analysis, field checking, simulation analysis and physical test are done from the aspects of the control system, the VBE system, the converter valve and its components and the TE boards, which successfully eliminates the possibility of the converter valve abnormal breakover by the control system, VBE system, converter valve and its components. Through the analysis and high voltage test of the BTC circuit of the TE boards, it is found that the TE boards will mis-trigger the thyristor under the high pollution and humidity condition. Based on the analysis of the relationship of the BTC acting threshold and the number of the abnormal TE boards, the decrease of the threshold of the partial BTC is set in the EMTDC simulation on the four events, and the simulation waves are highly similar to the field fault waves. The results show that even if part of TE boards are clean and the rest are polluted seriously, the TE boards also would lead to the abnormal breakover of the converter valve in the humid environment. © 2017, Power System Protection and Control Press.

DC current in DC grounding electrode can result in transformer DC bias in AC power grids and underground pipeline erosion nearby, becoming a main problem in DC grounding electrode construction and DC system operation. Interconnecting existing nearby grounding electrode is one of measures to reduce DC grounding current influence. This paper takes four DC grounding electrodes in China Southern Power Grid in Guangdong as example. By taking account of current field in soil due to DC grounding electrodes and circuit of connection network above ground, a coupled field-circuit model is set up. Then, with help of numerical simulation, method interconnecting grounding electrodes is studied according to grounding current distribution, ground potential rise, and so on. A scheme is put forward collecting all grounding currents to a busbar and redistributing them to grounding electrodes. The current assigned to each grounding electrode can be optimized by choosing suitable connecting conductors to adjust connecting resistance. Comparative analysis shows that the proposed scheme can greatly reduce influence of DC current on transformer in AC power grid, buried pipelines and other facilities. Future new DC project can connect to group of existing grounding electrodes directly without building new electrode. The scheme is reliable, flexible, easy to expand, and has a high price ratio. © 2017, Power System Technology Press. All right reserved.

When metallic return line occurs transient fault, DC protection system will not request fault restart in existing protection logic in Xing-An HVDC Project, which reduces the reliability of DC system. This paper proposes a metallic return line longitudinal differential protection (87MLL) at SIMADYN D platform. This protection acts as the main protection for metallic return line earth fault. This paper uses EMTDC model to simulate earth fault at different power, different fault location, different resistance monopolar metallic return operation. The result shows that the protection has misstrip risk when fault resistance is large, the arc can't extinguish during DC system restart when DC power is high. By comprehensively considering protection logic design scheme and EMTDC simulation result, we don't suggest to add 87MLL in Xing-An HVDC Project.

Yunnan-Guangdong ±800 kV DC transmission project is the first UHVDC transmission project in the world. The DC power transmission system must supply emergency power when the load increases or AC system malfunctions at the receiving end. It requires the DC power system to overload operating to increase its transmission capacity. This paper mainly studies the overload capability of the converter valve. It proposes a theory of calculating the overload capability based on the junction temperature and cooling capability of the valve cooling system. Moreover, with the specific data, it calculates and analyzes the overload capability of converter valve in Chuxiong-Suidong DC transmission project. The result indicates that this arithmetic can get the accurate overload capability of converter valve, which can provide reference and guidance to the design and operation of the practical HVDC transmission project. ©, 2014, Power System Protection and Control Press.

The feature of strong DC system and weak AC system in the CSPG becomes more obvious after Nuozhadu and Xiluodu HVDC system was put into operation. Transmission line fault, especially HVDC system block caused by lightning stroke fault impacts the safety and stability of power network for CSPG. This paper selects three typical lightning stroke fault which led to HVDC block in CSPG in 2013 to analyze response strategy of control and protection logic in different cases such as arc is not extinguished, dielectric strength is not restored, and transmission line is struck by lighting continuously. It points out the shortage of deionization time and the set time of fault counter. Finally, it suggests to avoid unnecessary HVDC system outage.

In order to get an accurate soil structure, we put forward a method for solving the soil structure inverse problem by genetic algorithm (GA), in which the distinction produced by the experimental and theoretical curves of soil apparent resistivity is adopted to achieve an optimized soil structure. Compared with the present method which is used to solve the soil structure based on GA, first, the proposed method possesses advantages that we rationally set the initial precision of soil parameters, then the solution space is compressed, which makes the inverse problem of simple soil structure to directly converge to optimum in this precision; meanwhile, for the inverse problem of complex soil structure, the genetic-reckoning algorithm and variable precision method are introduced. So, during the estimation of soil structure, the solution space will be compressed into a certain scale and new individuals around the optimal solution will be introduced, which make the iteration process to more easily escape the local optimal solution, approaching the overall optimum. The calculation shows that the results of two-layer soil structure can coverage to overall optimum, the fitness value Fg=0 and for three-layer soil structure, the Fg calculated by the paper is smaller than simple GA; at the same time, the proposed method has a more stable output, the output difference is small in ten times repeated calculation. © 2016, High Voltage Engineering Editorial Department of CEPRI.

As one of the most important devices in the HVDC transmission system, the converter valve directly determines the reliability of the whole system. When the HVDC system has to operate in overload condition, the maximum current of the converter valve is defined as its overload capability to ensure the secure and reliable operation of the HVDC system. In this paper, the main factors affecting the overload capability of the converter valve are summarized, and a method for calculating overload capability of converter valve is proposed according to the thyristor junction temperature and the cooling capability of the valve cooling system. Moreover, the overload capability of the converter valve in the Anshun-Zhaoqing HVDC transmission project of the China Southern Power Grid is calculated with the roposed method. © 2015, Xi'an High Voltage Apparatus Research Institute.
