The finite element model of suspended converter valve in an UHVDC transmission project with characteristics of flexible is constructed, and its vibration characteristics are simulated and analyzed firstly. The results show that this kind of suspended converter valve has obvious long-period character. Secondly, the long period phase of standard response spectrum in Code for Seismic Design of Buildings (GB50011-2010) is modified, and then the artificial seismic wave is synthesized employing the

Finally, the time-history seismic dynamic simulation of the converter valve is done, and the seismic responses of the converter valve excited by three kinds of seismic wave with different period characters are compared and analyzed. The results show that the swing and stress of the suspended converter valve are larger under the long-period seismic wave synthesized in this paper. The quasi-resonance damage caused by long-period seismic wave should be concerned specially in the actual UHVDC transmission project.
