Temporary overvoltage (TOV) is becoming one challenge for the integration of significant power electronics resources into a power system. To assess the risk of TOV in a Multi-Infeed Power Electronic System (MIPES), a worst-case estimation approach is proposed to assess TOV risk. The paper starts with analyzing the mechanism of TOV, which reveals that TOV is dominated by excessive reactive power resulting from control lagging of converters. Then, the principle of approximating the TOV for a Voltage Source Converter (VSC) connecting to an infinite bus is introduced within the context of the RMS model. After that, a methodology based on the concept of generalized short-circuit ratio for overvoltage (gSCR-TOV) is introduced to quantify the risk of TOV in a multi-bus system. The intent of this concept is to permit screening to identify those nodes at greatest need for further EMT assessment. To localize these nodes, a concept of weighted sensitivity matrix is further proposed to pinpoint the bus subject to highest TOV in a MIPES. Finally, case studies of EMT time-domain simulations are carried out and verifies the effectiveness of the proposed methodologies.
