Line commutated HVDC (LCC HVDC) technology has been in operation with a high level reliability and little maintenance requirements for more than 30 years. This technology plays an important role in particular in the wind energy industry. The current-source based or classical LCC-HVDC systems are being considered for buried cable transmission as well as overhead transmission. The fault analysis and protection of LCC-HVDC system is a very important aspect in terms of power system stability. This paper presents a comparative study of abc to dq0 transformation, and wavelet transform-based analysis for the identification of faults in an LCC HVDC system.
