This work presents a method for investigating the voltage stability of multi-infeed HVDC systems, which is based on the eigenvalue decomposition technique known as modal analysis. In this method, the eigenvalue of linearized steady-state system power-voltage equations are computed to evaluate the long-term voltage stability. The contributions of this work to modal analysis method are control systems of HVDC system, such as an Automatic Power Regulator (APR) and an Automatic (DC) Current Regulator (ACR) on its rectifier side and a changeover between an Automatic (DC) Voltage Regulator (AVR) and an Automatic extinction advance angle Regulator (AγR) modes on its inverter side, were taken into account, and the formularization for modal analysis considering not only these control systems of HVDC system but also generator and load characteristics was fulfilled and presented in this paper. The application results from an AC/DC model power system with dual HVDC systems verified the efficiency of the proposed method and quantitatively illustrated the influence of control systems of HVDC system on AC/DC system long-term voltage stability.
