  4. Abstract:
  5. Wind power generation is increasing fast as a clean renewable energy resource. Offshore wind farms are popular due to advantages such as higher and smoother wind speeds, less farm site limitations, etc. High capacitive currents and need to expensive compensations, make use of high-voltage-direct-current (HVDC) power transmission indispensable for longdistance wind farm power generations. Steady-state and transient performance improvements of HVDC systems have always been an interesting industrial and academic research area. In this paper, a novel control method is proposed to improve the steady-state operation of HVDC system. Moreover, a new fault detection scheme is proposed to improve the fault-ride-through capability of the system. The effectiveness of the proposed methods are verified against conventional control methods using simulation results
