Enhanced master/slave control strategy enabling grid support services and offshore wind power dispatch in a multi-terminal VSC HVDC transmission system

New high voltage direct current (HVDC) installations are expected to be able to provide stability support to the main synchronous networks to which they are connected. In multi-terminal HVDC (MTDC) schemes incorporating offshore wind farm this issue could be addressed by setting aside a reserve of wind energy by the curtailment of wind turbine generators (WTGs).
