The proper selection of PI-controller parameters of MMC-VSC systems is a challenging task. At present, the industry practice is to use the trial and error approach that consumes a great amount of time. This paper analyses the performance of the generalized control tuning technique that can be used to simultaneously tune PI-controllers of practical MMC-VSC systems. The performance evaluation is done in-terms of the average time taken to determine suitable PI-controller parameters that satisfy the predefined performance requirements. It is showed that the proposed method is simple and fast.
