Title: Development of a Converter-Based Transmission Line Emulator with Three-Phase Short-Circuit Fault Emulation Capability

Abstract

A transmission line emulator has been developed to flexibly represent interconnected ac lines under normal operating conditions in a voltage source converter (VSC)-based power system emulation platform. As the most serious short-circuit fault condition, the three-phase short-circuit fault emulation is essential for power system studies. Here, this paper proposes a model to realize a three-phase short-circuit fault emulation at different locations along a single transmission line or one of several parallel-connected transmission lines. At the same time, a combination method is proposed to eliminate the undesired transients caused by the current reference step changes while switching between the fault state and the normal state. Experiment results verify the developed transmission line three-phase short-circuit fault emulation capability.
