High Voltage Direct Current system based on Voltage Source Converters (VSC-HVDC) is becoming a more effective, solution for long distance power transmission especially for off-shore wind plants and supplying power to remote regions Confronting with an increasing demand of power, there is a need to explore the most efficient and reliable bulk power transmission system. Rapid development in the field of power electronics devices especially Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) has led to the High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission based on Voltage Source Converters (VSCs).Since VSCs do not require commutating voltage from the connected ac grid, they are effective in supplying power to isolated and remote loads. Due to its advantages, it is possible that VSC-HVDC will be one of the most important components of power systems in the future. The VSC based HVDC transmission system mainly consists of two converter stations connected by a DC cable. This paper presents the performance analysis of VCS based HVDC transmission system. In this paper a 75kM long VSC HVDC system is simulated for various faults on the ACSide of the receiving station using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The data has been analyzed and a method is proposed to classify the faults by using back propagation algorithm. The simulated results presented in this paper are in good agreement with the published work.
