Book Description

Grid-Forming Power Inverters: Control and Applications" is the first book dedicated to address the operation principles, grid codes, modelling and control of grid-forming power inverters. The book discusses initially the need for this technology due to the substantial annual integration of inverter-based renewable energy resources. The key differences between the traditional grid-following and the emerging grid-forming inverters technology are explained. Then, the book explores in detail various related topics to grid-forming power inverters including requirements and grid standards, modelling, control, damping power system oscillations, dynamic stability under large fault events, virtual oscillator-controlled grid-forming inverters, grid-forming inverters interfacing battery energy storage and islanded operation of grid-forming inverters.

Key selling feature:

  • Explains the key differences between grid-following and grid-forming inverters.
  • Explore the requirements and grid standards for grid-forming inverters
  • Provides detailed modeming of virtual synchronous generators
  • Explains various control strategies for grid-forming inverters
  • Investigates damping of power system oscillations using grid-forming converters
  • elaborates dynamic stability of for grid-forming inverters under large fault events
  • Focuses on practical applications.
