In the flexible AC/DC distribution system supplying passive network, when the modular multi-level converter (MMC) inverter AC line fault occurs, the MMC short-circuit current amplitude is greatly affected by the control strategy, which may affect the operation performance of three-stage current protection. In view of this, a flexible AC/DC distribution network system supplying power to the passive network is built on the RTDS platform, and then the AC fault traverse strategy is designed in the MMC controller. Based on the thinking of coordinated control and protection of the fault through the strategy into two cases with no input to higher current protections performance simulation contrast, the simulation results show that asymmetric fault occurred when MMC inverter AC line, under the effect of communication failure through the strategy, the current main protection I, II period of refusing action, only by this line nearly backup protection current section III delay removal of fault. The three-stage current protection based on the fault current characteristics of pure AC system has poor action performance and is no longer suitable for the AC line of MMC inverter station.
