Abstract: This work analysis the multi-terminal DC grids dynamics under AC mainland grid fault events envisioning to assess the feasibility of fault ride-through provision. The major bottleneck related with the operation under AC fault consists on the DC side power imbalance that takes place due to the HVDC converter current limits and consequent incapability of delivering all the generated power to the grid. It was also verified that the power imbalance leads to a DC overvoltage occurrence. The mechanism of including chopper devices at the onshore converters DC terminals has been studied as a mean of power equilibrium promotion. Simulations comparing the both cases were performed and the comparison and the effectiveness of the adopted approach are also presented.
