Damping Provision by Different Virtual Synchronous Machine Schemes
Paper in proceedings, 2020

The adoption of virtual synchronous machine (VSM) schemes for the control of power converters is gaining more and more attention both in academia and industry. The VSM control strategies fall into the category of grid-forming converter controls, and they are intended for a range of different applications, providing specific services and different kinds of support to the grid. The paper investigates the possibility of damping provision to the system by VSM power converters. Different schemes are considered and compared, showing the opportunity of the investigated solutions through combined modal and time domain analyses. A specific modification of the power synchronization loop is recognized as the most suitable method to contain the power oscillations and increase the damping level in the system.
