A multi-modular current-source based hybrid converter mainly designed for superconducting magnetic energy storage system (SMES) is investigated in this paper. The converter consists of a four-module current source converter and one module of voltage source converter to reach high power rate and low harmonics. Circuit topology, control method and simulation results are given.
