Abstract

DC power generation for MVDC grids is in the easiest way realized by a cascade connection of a synchronous generator and a diode rectifier. Due to large peak fault currents, including oscillating transient components, it is important to know in depth the short circuit behaviour of diode rectifiers, mainly during the first moments after the fault. This is helpful to be able to perform a suitable sizing of the system and its protections. In order to obtain an accurate estimation of the transient short circuit current, models for software simulation of 6-pulse and 12-pulse DC generator systems have been implemented. This paper shows the validation of such models by the comparison of simulation results with experimental tests.
