ABSTRACT The initial parameters of the superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) fed by a voltage source converter (VSMES) are studied and the setting rules are designed in this paper. A time-domain simulation model is established by using the software PSCAD/EMTDC. Based on this model, the application of the VSMES in the power system is used to test the designed rules. The simulation results are valuable for the further research of the initial parameters design of the VSMES.
