HVDC line

The com.powsybl.iidm.network.HvdcLine interface is used to model an HVDC Line. An HVDC line is connected to the DC side of two HVDC converters stations.

Characteristics

Attribute Type Unit Required Default value Description
R double yes - The resistance of the line
ConvertersMode ConvertersMode - yes - The converter’s mode
NominalV double kV yes - The nominal voltage
ActivePowerSetpoint MW double yes - The active power setpoint
MaxP double MW yes - The maximum active power
ConverterStationId1 String - yes - The ID of the HVDC converter station connected on side 1
ConverterStationId2 String - yes - The ID of the HVDC converter station connected on side 2

ConvertersMode

The com.powsybl.iidm.network.HvdcLine.ConvertersMode enum contains these two values:

  • SIDE_1_RECTIFIER_SIDE_2_INVERTER,
  • SIDE_1_INVERTER_SIDE_2_RECTIFIER

Examples

This example shows how to create a new HvdcLine in the network:

HvdcLine hvdcLine = network.newHvdcLine()
    .setId("HL")
    .setR(5.0)
    .setConvertersMode(HvdcLine.ConvertersMode.SIDE_1_INVERTER_SIDE_2_RECTIFIER)
    .setNominalV(440.0)
    .setMaxP(50.0)
    .setActivePowerSetpoint(20.0)
    .setConverterStationId1("C1")
    .setConverterStationId2("C2")
    .add();
