Abstract

Aspects are described for line frequency commutated voltage source converters for multiphase modular multilevel converters. A voltage source converter (VSC) capacitor voltage of a multiphase VSC of a multiphase power converter can be identified. The multiphase VSC can include a half-bridge circuit for each phase of the multiphase power converter. A circuit parameter can be identified and utilized to determine an arm voltage of an arm of a branch of the multiphase converter. Switch control signals can be generated to insert or bypass the VSC capacitor for the arm of the branch of the multiphase converter device, based at least in part on a comparison between the arm voltage and the VSC capacitor voltage.
