TF-77 – AC fault response options for VSC HVDC converters

Cigre Study Committee B4 (DC and Power Electronics) set up a Task Force, TF-77, with the aim of summarising the requirements from the AC power system planners/operators with regards to the response to AC faults and reviewing what HVDC equipment control strategies can achieve.  TF-77 published its results in the CIGRE Science & Engineering Journal in October 2019.  The webinar will summarise the findings of this paper.
