A high voltage DC-DC converter is a key component of future HVDC grids. This paper presents a comparison of a single-stage and multi-stage converter. Both topologies are based on the Marx principle where charged capacitors are charged in parallel and discharged in series to achieve the voltage transformation. Detailed models of both converter topologies at 50 MW, 6kV/72kV are designed and simulated using Matlab/Simulink package software.
