Sep 2014 Modular Multilevel Converters Over-Voltage Diagnosis and Remedial Strategy During Blocking Sequences
Authors : Antonios Antonopoulos, Authors : Handy Fortin Blanchette, Authors : Kamal Al-Haddad, Authors : Lennart Ängquist, Authors : Luc-André Gregoire, Authors : Wei Li
Abstract : In this paper the authors first highlight an existing over-voltage phenomenon that is inherent to the Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) topology. The latter occurs during the blocking sequences of semiconductor devices...

Sep 2013 Modular-Multilevel-Converter Dynamic Analysis and Remedial Strategy for Voltage Transients During Blocking
Authors : Antonios Antonopoulos, Authors : Handy Fortin Blanchette, Authors : Kamal Al-Haddad, Authors : Lennart Ängquist, Authors : Luc-André Gregoire, Authors : Wei Li
Abstract : This paper proposes a thorough analysis of the blocking sequence for modular multilevel converters in order to avoid fast voltage transients; such transients increase the stress on the different components of the...
