© 2013 IEEE. This paper proposes a new droop coefficient design method with the aim of improving the power-sharing accuracy among the converters in a multi-terminal dc (MTDC) system. The proposed droop coefficient design method works by adjusting the droop coefficient and can realize an arbitrary power-sharing ratio among all the converters in an MTDC system. This method does not rely on a communication network and therefore has the potential for higher reliability than the alternative methods. Mitigating the impact of the variation of dc line resistances on the power-sharing is discussed. Simulation of a four-terminal MTDC system is carried out by using PSCAD/EMTDC. The experimental results under a scaled-down four-terminal dc grid platform demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
