Control of Power Converters in AC Microgrids
This chapter introduces the basic concepts, the operation of the power converters, and the performance of the control schemes in AC microgrids. First, the power converters are classified according to the main function performed either as grid-feeding converters or as grid-forming converters. Second, a complete description of the most important control loops in αβ stationary reference frame is presented. Finally, the chapter concludes with key findings and remarks on the control schemes.
