Manitoba Hydro required a method for the specification of the Nelson River Bipole III AC harmonic filters and AC system harmonic impedances at the new southern HVDC converter station, Riel. It was recognized that the filter design at Riel would not only be impacted by its own Bipole III converter harmonic current injection, but also by the following:
The objective of this investigation was to establish a method for specifying the performance and rating of the AC filters at Riel, considering the impact of Dorsey and AC system configuration on the Riel filters, ensuring that the Dorsey filtering performance and rating was not significantly affected.
