Since the 1980s, the direct current (DC) transmission technology has developed rapidly in China. However, with the large-scale application of DC transmission technology, new problems are brought to the power system. Commutation failure of the DC system will cause overvoltage in the alternating current (AC) power network, which will cause great harm to the weak AC system with wind power access. Therefore, it is urgent to carry out research on overvoltage suppression at the sending end of AC system. This paper reveals the formation mechanism of transient overvoltage and confirms that the control parameters of DC system influence the voltage at the sending end directly. And the appropriate control parameters were selected to suppress the overvoltage by the parameter optimization based on genetic algorithm (GA).
