Commutation failure is a key issue that affects the safe operation of HVDC transmission systems. Scholars at home and abroad have conducted research on the mechanism, evaluation indicators, and control strategies of commutation failure. However, most of the researches are aimed at the working conditions of commutation failure caused by a short-circuit fault on the AC side. There are few studies on the commutation failure caused by the harmonic injection on the AC side and the distortion of the AC bus voltage waveform. This paper clarifies the mechanism of commutation failure caused by waveform distortion, and proposes an index of harmonic commutation margin. On this basis, an evaluation method for commutation failure caused by waveform distortion is proposed. By predicting the commutation voltage-time area and optimization methods to assess whether the current voltage conditions have the risk of commutation failure. Finally, an electromagnetic transient simulation model is established on PSCAD/EMTDC, and the evaluation method in this chapter is verified by simulating the working conditions of the inverter side bus voltage waveform distortion. The results show its effectiveness in evaluating the commutation failure. The research provides a theoretical basis to the implementation of the control function and has broad engineering application prospects.
