The symmetrical monopolar configuration is the prevailing scheme configuration for high voltage direct current (HVDC) interconnectors utilizing themodular multilevel converter (MMC) topology. However, the rigid bipolar configuration is gaining significance, as first projects are currently in planning stage. The purpose of this paper is to analyse bothHVDCscheme configurations with regard to cable voltage stresses originating from shortcircuit faults. The study focuses on HVDC cables with extruded insulation connected to MMCs equipped with half-bridge (HB) submodules. Basic design aspects in rigid bipolar configuration such as the station grounding concept are discussed. Moreover, various station internal as well as dc faults are examined by means of electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulations. Occurring cable voltage stresses are analyzed with respect to voltage polarity, peak value and wave front-parameters and compared in symmetrical monopolar and rigid bipolar configuration. It is demonstrated that cable overvoltages with same polarity as the dc operating voltage are significantly reduced in schemes operating in rigid bipolar configuration. ... mehr
