Virtual Oscillator Control of Power Electronic Inverters


Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a device that will synchronize the output of DC/AC inverters for the purpose of combining them into a micro-grid. The system would instantly react to power supplies suddenly connecting or disconnecting without ever allowing any deviation from the present perameters. The benefits over current systems is the lack of communication needed, and the impossibility of dangerous surges while adjusting to sudden changes.
