    Droop control is a common method to parallel operation of inverters. This method uses the average values of power components which are usually obtained through low-pass filters. However, in single-phase systems the power ...

    The droop control uses the local average values of the active and reactive power components for sharing the load power demand among inverters in parallel. In this paper, a method that uses a virtual quadrature reference ...
  • Safe transient operation of microgrids based on master-slave configuration 

    Azevedo, Gustavo M.S.; Bradaschia, F.; Calvancanti, M; Neves, F.; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro; Rocabert Delgado, Joan (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011)

    Master-Slave configuration is a suitable alternative to droop control method used in microgrids. In this configuration, only one inverter is the master, while the others are slaves. The slave inverters are always current ...
  • Voltage quality improvement of microgrids under islanding mode 

    Azevedo, Gustavo; Rodríguez Cortés, Pedro; Rocabert Delgado, Joan; Calvancanti, M; Neves, F (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a control strategy to reduce the voltage unbalance in microgrids. The voltage unbalance compensation is achieved by injection of a proper negativesequence current into the microgrid. This task can ...
