    ABSTRACT: With the development of power system, the level of short circuit current will increase accordingly. In general, the influence of the HVDC system and the new energy source is not considered in the calculation of the short circuit current. For the power grid that short circuit current level closes to the interrupting capacity of circuit breaker, it’s necessary to fully consider all kinds of influence factors, careful checking, so as to obtain more accurate calculation results of short circuit current. In 2018, two ±800 kV high-power Ultra High Voltage Direct Current (UHVDC) transmission projects will be connected with Shaanxi power grid, accompanied by a lot of concomitant fossil-fuel generating plants as power resource, and also a large number of new energy source, includes wind power generation and photovoltaic power generation. Around one of the UHVDC converter stations, short circuit current may exceed the withstand limit of some certain circuit breakers. In order to get more accurate short circuit current calculation results, three measures are used: 1) contrastive calculation and analysis by algorithm based on schemes and algorithm based on power flow; 2) analysis the influence of UHVDC by electromagnetic transient and electromechanical transient hybrid simulation; 3) considered a detailed model of Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) with low voltage ride through characteristics. The calculation results shows that: in the typical operation mode of Shaanxi power grid of 2018, the original calculation results by conventional calculation method are coincident with the results by considering the influence of algorithms, UHVDC and DFIG in large, in which: the results of the algorithm based on power flow are smaller than that of the algorithm based on schemes about 2 - 8 kA; the steady values of the short circuit current provided by UHVDC converterstation (includes rectifiers and smoothing capacitors) are about 0 - 3 kA; the steady values of the short circuit current provided by DFIG are about 0 - 5 kA. The calculation results can provide reference for the selection of the circuit breaker, and it can be verified by fault recording data in the future.
