VSC Converter Station

The com.powsybl.iidm.network.VscConverterStation interface is used to model a VSC Converter Station. In IIDM, this is a sub interface of HVDC Converter Station.

Characteristics

Attribute Type Unit Required Default value Description
VoltageRegulatorOn boolean - yes - The voltage regulator status
VoltageSetpoint double kV no - The voltage setpoint
ReactivePowerSetpoint double MVar no - The reactive power setpoint

Setpoints

The voltage setpoint is required if the voltage regulator is on. The reactive power setpoint is required if the voltage regulator is off.

Reactive Limits

A set of reactive limits can be associated to a VSC converter station. All the reactive limits modelings available in the library are described here.

Examples

This example shows how to create a new VSC Converter Station in a network:

VscConverterStation vcs = voltageLevel.newVscConverterStation()
    .setId("VSC")
    .setConnectableBus("B1")
    .setBus("B1")
    .setLossFactor(0.011f)
    .setVoltageRegulatorOn(true)
    .setVoltageSetpoint(405.0)
    .add();
