In this paper High Voltage Direct Current system based on Voltage Source Converter (VSC-HVDC) connecting large–scale Offshore Wind Farm (LSOWF) for gas station, is presented. The three level Neutral Point diode Clamped (NPC) converter is used in VSC-HVDC system to improve the power reliability and transmission capacity. Exploitation of a platform Oil and gas industry has been used in the last few years, two options to run its machines either using a gas turbine or to convert the energy from coast by submarine cables. This issue is solved using a cleaner and less expensive renewable energy, such as offshore wind turbine. However, efficiency and safe operation of the gas platform in case of defect or system disturbance should be solved. To achieve these objectives, Photovoltaic system is employed to ensure stable operation of sensible elements of the platform during fault. Furthermore, crowbar protection topology, instantaneous power and Adaline algorithms are also employed to solve the problem caused by positive DC fault and to control the offshore and onshore VSCs. MATLAB/SIMULINK is employed to demonstrate and validate of the proposed concept. The proposed scheme may enable optimal integration of highly distributed of LSOWF and demonstrate the good performance of VSC-HVDC.
