A method based on fuzzy comprehensive evaluation to optimize the maintenance strategy of HVDC transmission system is proposed to provide quantitative reference for the maintenance arrangements. Firstly, a system based on fuzzy comprehensive evaluation, is established to fuzzy the index results of power system adequacy evaluation, so as to analysis the degree of risk in the operation of power system and the effect brought by the maintenance of HVDC. Then, the proposal on the maintenance of HVDC can be formed through the quantization and evaluation summary of the fuzzy results. The equivalent network of the China Southern Power Grid in 2011 ,which respectively operates in the circumstances of peak load, general load and low load, demonstrates the HVDC transmission systems in different operation modes have corresponding Overhaul timing .The result shows that the method proposed is valid and in accordance with engineering practice.
