The series bridge converter (SBC): a hybrid modular multilevel converter for HVDC applications
Amankwah, Emmanuel K. and Costabeber, Alessando and Watson, Alan James and Trainer, David and Jasim, Omar and Chivite-Zabalza, Javie and Clare, Jon C. (2016) The series bridge converter (SBC): a hybrid modular multilevel converter for HVDC applications. In: 18th European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications, 6-8 Sept 2016, Karlsruhe, Germany.
This paper presents a novel hybrid modular multilevel voltage source converter suitable for HVDC applications. It has the advantages of other modular multilevel topologies and can be made more compact making it attractive for offshore stations and city infeed applications. The Operating principle of the converter and internal energy management are discussed with simulation results from a scaled medium voltage demonstrator presented to validate the concepts.
