The integration of the voltage-source converter based high voltage direct current (VSC-HVDC) system makes the set-point of its active power adaptive to the changes in the power flow, and contributes to the curative congestion management. To further exploit the dynamic behavior of a hybrid AC/DC power system in curative congestion management scenarios, this paper investigates a novel control scheme for voltage angle droop controlled HVDC (VAD-HVDC) systems. The proposed scheme to alleviate the circuit overload is estimated firstly by calculating the severity index when the power flow changes under N-1 situations. Then the voltage angle controlled HVDC system is applied on the modified IEEE 39-bus 10-machine test power system for the time-domain simulation. The dynamic behavior in the HVDC station validates that the VAD control can stabilize the DC voltage and possess a good ability against interference. In addition, the dynamic characteristics analysis on the AC transmission lines proves that the hybrid AC/DC system integrated with the VAD controlled HVDC system are in possession of good stability after the N-1 contingency event. The VAD controller employed in the HVDC system is capable of effective congestion management to mitigate the critical loadings on the transmission lines.
