A local stability condition for dc grids with constant power loads
Rights accessOpen Access
Currently, there are an increasing number of power electronics converters in electrical grids, performing the most diverse tasks, but most of them, work as constant power loads (CPLs). This work presents a sufficient condition for the local stability of dc linear time-invariant circuits with constant power loads for all the possible equilibria (depending on the drained power) of the systems. The condition is shown as a method with successive steps that should be met. Its main step is expressed as a linear matrix inequality test which is important for easiness of verification reasons. The method is illustrated with two examples: a single-port RLC circuit connected to a CPL and a two-port linear dc circuit connected to two CPLs.
