In DC microgrid (DC-MG), the loads connected with converters under strict control are considered as CPLs (constant power loads). When the voltage of CPLs decreases, the current increases and the negative impedance characteristic of CPLs cause instability easily. Fortunately, appropriate control for energy storage units could improve the system stability. However, most traditional control methods for bidirectional DC-DC power converters (BDC) connected with battery storage units do not quantitatively consider the stability influences of control parameters. This paper quantitatively analyzes the stability influence of the BDC current-mode control parameters and the negative impact of CPLs and derives the control parameter determination method for BDC interfaced storage systems. Large signal stability constraints are obtained in terms of mixed potential function. According to the constraints, the large signal stability is improved when the BDC control parameter kp increases, while the stability is degraded when the power of CPLs increases. The control parameter determination method is very effective and convenient to apply, and the appropriate parameter kp for BDC is determined. The regions of asymptotic stability (RAS) identify that the proposed control parameter determination method could improve the system stability effectively. The determination method is fully verified by the simulation and experimental results. View Full-Text
