B4/B5-59 Control and Protection of HVDC Grids

The objective of this WG is to provide guidelines for the control and protection system needed for a HVDC Grid, with the emphasis for this WG being on the protection of the HVDC Grid and the elements within it, and not on the Converter or ac side equipment.

The WG will consider the entire HVDC Grid protection system e.g. the measurement, fault detection and interruption devices. It will develop the requirements for the system in relation to:

  • Availability and reliability including redundancy requirements,
  • Speed,
  • Selectivity,
  • Maintainability,

 All possible faults within the HVDC grid or affecting the ac grid, including dc line faults, “dc breaker” failures, and converter faults will be considered.
