TRANSIENT STABILITY AND CURRENT INJECTION DESIGN OF PARALLELED CURRENT-CONTROLLD VSCS AND VIRTUAL SYNCHRONOUS GENERATORS

Abstract

ABSTRACT

With development of power electronic technology, the paralleled current-controlled voltage source converters (CCSs) and virtual synchronous generators (VSGs) system has advantages in providing power and voltage/frequency regulation at the same time in rural area or Remote Island. However, the paralleled system faces great challenges in safe and stable operation due to their limited thermal capacity and weak anti-disturbance ability, especially during fault periods. This Project focuses on transient stability and stability-oriented control design of the paralleled CCS-VSG system. First, mathematical model of the paralleled system is established and then the effect of two kinds of CCSs’ current injection angle (active current and reactive current) on VSG’s transient stability has been revealed through extended equal area criterion. Based on the theoretical analysis results, transient stability improvement control is put forward by controlling the CCS to track the VSG’s frame. Compared with the conditions that only active- or reactive current is provided by the CCS, the system can achieve the best transient performance when the proposed control is adopted. Moreover, the effect of CCS’s capacity on transient stability of the VSG has also been discussed. Finally, both Lyapunov’s method and simulation/experimental results are provided to validate the correctness of theoretical analysis.
