A Review on Voltage Source Inverters Used in The Power Enhancement of Microgrids


  • Nithya Subramani
  • Prof. Achie Malviya


Three key issues that the traditional power system is currently facing are the progressive depletion of fossil fuels, poor energy efficiency, as well as environmental contamination. These issues can be solved by using renewable energy resources (RERs), but several technical and governmental concerns must be resolved before these green generation techniques can be properly integrated into distribution systems. Thus, the voltage source inverters often used boost power quality in microgrids and then also lessen concerns associated to microgrid stability were examined inside this paper.
