%X The modular multilevel converter (MMC) has the advantages of high efficiency, low harmonic, modular design, and easy cascade, which has been widely used in the field of high voltage and large capacity energy conversion. In order to improve the dynamic response speed of the MMC-HVDC based on the modular multi-level converter, a novel method which combines a model predictive control (MPC) of MMC-HVDC system with improved sub-module voltage balanced control strategy is proposed. The method, which utilises the prediction model, feedback correction and rolling optimisation to obtain the optimal voltage control, overcomes the difficulties in the traditional way of setting PI parameters of the internal loop current controller and the outer loop controller and tackles the problem of low dynamic response. Finally, a 21-level MMC-HVDC system simulation model is built on PSCAD-EMTDC software platform. The simulation results indicate the effectiveness and feasibility of the control strategy.
