Oscillation Suppression Method by Two Notch Filters for Parallel Inverters under Weak Grid Conditions
AbstractWith plenty of parallel inverters connected to a weak grid at the point of common coupling (PCC), the impedance coupling interactions between the inverters and the grid are enhanced, which may cause high-frequency harmonic oscillation and further aggravate the system instability. In this paper, a basic technique for inverter output impedance is proposed to suppress the oscillation, showing that the inverter output impedance should be designed relatively high at the harmonic oscillation frequency, while relatively low at other frequencies. On the basis of the proposed technique, two virtual impedances are added to be in parallel and in series with the original inverter output impedance, respectively. Thus, an oscillation suppression method by two notch filters is proposed to realize the virtual impedances and increase the whole system damping. The implementation forms of the virtual impedances are presented by the proposed PCC voltage feedforward and grid-side inductor current feedback with two notch filters. Finally, simulation and experimental results are provided to verify the validity of the proposed control method. View Full-Text
