Abstract

This paper introduces an improvement in the coordination of two different voltage source converters (VSCs) controlled by the improved finite control set model predictive control (FCS-MPC). It investigates the transient performance of both converters and the alleviation of the circulating power in case of different output impedances. In order to ensure proper load sharing, a suitable coordination is applied and utilizing droop control. Simulation and experimental results validate the better performance of the proposed improved FCS-MPC and its appropriate droop characteristics to enable proper parallel operation.
