This paper proposes a hierarchical Fuzzy Interface System (FIS) Predicated control architecture designed for an arbitrary high voltage multi terminal dc (MTDC) network. Modular multilevel converter (MMC)s a well-proved circuit topology in voltage-source converter-based high voltage direct current (VSC-HVdc) transmission systems. As is known, the conventional half-bridge submodule (HBSM)-based MMC-HVdc s not suitable for overhead line transmission applications. In addition, high energy storage requirements, .e., large capacitance is nevitable. The conventional design of the full-bridge submodule (FBSM)-based MMC usually does not utilize the negative voltage state of FBSM in normal operation. Considering the same dc voltage as with the HBSM case and utilizing the negative voltage state of the FBSM, this paper presents the design method of the power transmission capability of a single FBSM. Meanwhile, an optimized energy storage capacitance design method of the FBSM is proposed. With this method, the capacitance of FBSM can be reduced significantly. The correctness and effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by the simulation of a±160kVVSC-HVdc MMC and the comparison results of the dc short fault blocking and ride through capability are also provided.
