Attributed to the ability of inertia provision and good regulation performance, the virtual synchronous generator (VSG) has been proven as a promising solution to the problems introduced by using converter interfaced generation. Although the small-signal stability control of the VSG has been widely analyzed, the transient characteristics still needs more study, which belongs to a large-signal problem. In this article, the transient angle stability control of the VSG is investigated. Two possible VSG emulation methods, i.e., the power-emulation and the torque-emulation, are compared from the perspective of transient characteristics. Then, the transient of the VSG internal voltage and its impact on the transient angle stability are quantitatively studied in details. Thereafter, an enhanced VSG controller is proposed, where a large-signal analysis is also presented to evaluate its influence on the acceleration and deceleration areas. Finally, the analysis and effectiveness of the enhanced VSG method are validated by the experimental results.
