Abstract

This paper proposes a goal representation heuristic dynamic programming (GrHDP)-based resilient wide-area damping controller (WADC) for voltage source converter high voltage direct current (VSC-HVDC) employing redundant wide-area signals as input signals to tolerate communication failure. A supervisory fuzzy logic module is proposed and added in the resilient WADC to adjust the learning rate of GrHDP online when encountering communication failure. Moreover, the resilient WADC does not need the accurate model of the power system and has the adaptability to the variation of operation conditions and communication failures. Case studies are conducted in a 10-machine 39-bus system with one VSC-HVDC transmission line. Simulation results show that the resilient WADC can counteract the negative impact of communication failures on control performance under a wide range of system operating conditions.
