Objective: To reduce the power oscillations and also to provide accurate active power and reactive power sharing. Methods: In this paper enhanced Virtual Synchronous Generator (VSG) control strategy along with Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) is employed for parallel inverters in microgrids. It deals with design of the system and simulation results shows the improvement obtained through it. Findings: By using enhanced VSG control, the oscillation damping and proper transient active power sharing are achieved by adjusting the virtual stator reactance and also accurate reactive power sharing is achieved based on inversed voltage droop control. Furthermore, FLC is used as suitable controllable mechanism (which was PI in basic VSG) for controlling the parallel inverters in microgrids with which power oscillations are further damped and accurate active and reactive power sharing are achieved. The simulation results prove that the proposed method is better than the basic VSG for parallel inverters in microgrids. Application: This scheme is used for control of inverters in distributed source environments. This is essential for the operation of large AC systems, where distances between inverters make communication impractical. Use of multilevel inverters or an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) can be considered as improvement for this paper.
