RXHK has successfully won the bid for Lot 1: Supply of Active Power Filter Equipment for the State Grid of China Corporation (SGCC) Fujian- Guangdong Interconnection Project. The scope of supply includes two sets of three-phase 88kV Active Power Filter connecting to the 500kV AC filter terminals. The scheduled delivery date is 30th April 2022.
The Fujian-Guangdong Interconnection Project is the only B2B LCC-HVDC project investment by State Grid in the past ten years, and it is also a landmark project for the deepening cooperation between State Grid and China Southern Power Grid. It is the first time a high voltage active power filter will be utilized in HVDC converter station.
Whilst LCC-HVDC valve technology is currently able to deliver high power rating converters than VSC-HVDC it does have the drawback of higher harmonic emissions. The dynamic adaptive filtering technology to be provided by RXHK, based on VSC converter technology, will be installed at the Fujian-Guangdong Interconnector B2B Converter station and will improve the HVDC converter station filtering effect by more than 10%. The APF technology also provides a lower footprint solution than conventional filter arrangements.
The two APF systems to be delivered by RXHK will provide two separate control modes:
Control Mode 1：Harmonic Voltage/Impedance Control
Control Mode2: Harmonic Current Compensation Control
The Fujian-Guangdong Interconnection Project will be the first LCC-HVDC project in Fujian Province. The completion of the project will greatly improve the delivery of renewable energy, supporting the energy transition and support the optimization of energy resources allocation more widely across the SGCC network.
