High voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) has the advantages of large transmission capacity, low cost, low losses, and strong asynchronous networking ability between power systems. Moreover, its high stability in transmitting electricity is conducive to long-distance and high-capacity power transmission. Moreover, high-voltage direct current transmission has advantages such as good economic efficiency, high-power long-distance transmission, and interconnection with different frequencies. In this context, the structure and control methods of high-voltage direct current transmission were studied. Finally, the HVDC was modeled using Simulink in Matlab, and based on this model, the system DC line fault simulation was conducted, resulting in corresponding simulation waveforms, which verified the effectiveness and correctness of the HVDC model.
