The average active and reactive powers, P and Q, are crucial parameters that have to be calculated when sharing common loads between parallelized droop-operated single-phase inverters. However, the droop method algorithm should employ low-pass filters (LPF) with very low cut-off frequency to minimize the distortion impact in the provide droop amplitude and frequency references. This situation forces the droop control to operate at a very low dynamic velocity, degrading the stability of the parallelized system. For this reason, different solutions had been proposed in literature to increase the droop velocity, but the issues derived from the sharing of nonlinear loads had not been properly considered. This work proposes a novel method to calculate P and Q based on the fundamental components of the inverter's output voltage and current and using the measured phase angle between the output voltage and current. The method is used under normal and highly distorting conditions due to the sharing non-linear loads. The fundamental components are obtained by means of the highly filtering capability provided by norder cascaded second order generalized integrators (nSOGI). The proposed method leads to faster and more accurate P and Q calculations that enhances the droop-method dynamic performance. Simulations are provided to validate the proposal.
