The penetration of renewable energy sources (RES) into a grid via inverters causes a stability issue due to the absence of an inertia. A virtual synchronous generator (VSG) is designed to provide an artificial inertia and droop control to the grid-connected inverters. The different power ratings of multiple VSGs create complications in the coordination due to unequal droop or damping coefficient ‘
’. The dependency of a factor ‘
droop control under static state and a damping behavior during power oscillation under dynamic state is analyzed by considering three cases on multi-VSGs microgrid system and the equivalent equations of
droop control are derived for all three cases to see the effect of a load on the overall system’s frequency. A master–slave configuration of a VSG is proposed to deliver maximum power during static state, but provides
control during the dynamic state. Simulation results verify the improvement introduced by the proposed VSG control.
