Abstract
When the high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission lines run in monopole grounding operation or bipolar asymmetric operation, most of the DC current will flow the loop consisted of the grounding electrode and AC lines between transformers. This current increases the reactive power consumption of the transformer and threats the normal operation of the power grid. To solve this problem, this paper focuses on the increasing of excitation current when the transformer works on DC magnetic bias, and a simulation model of substation system under DC bias condition is established based on PSCAD. Quantitative analysis of the variation of the excitation current and the condition of reactive power consumption of transformers under different biasing current injection is carried out. The result shows that with the increase of the DC biasing current, the transformer excitation current distortion and reactive power loss increases sharply, which is important to the research on DC current and the reactive power consumption of the transformer under different bias current injections.
