Integrated Synchronization Control of Grid-Forming Inverters for Smooth Microgrid Transition

Research output: NRELPoster


This paper develops an integrated synchronization control technique for a grid-forming inverter operating within a microgrid that can improve the microgrid's transients during microgrid transition operation. This integrated synchronization control includes the disconnection synchronization control and the reconnection synchronization control. The simulation results show that the developed synchronization control works effectively to smooth the angle change of the grid-forming inverter during microgrid transition operation. Thus, the microgrid's transients are significantly improved compared to the case without synchronization control.
