Synchrogenverter – Parallel Connection of Synchronous Generator and Power Converter with Energy Storage

Open access


The paper describes a novel power generation topology wherein synchronous generator has a parallel connected power electronic converter. In this arrangement, the synchronous generator is only the source of active power and the power electronic converter is the source of reactive power. Such power distribution generated by the synchronous generator makes it possible to increase active power of by 25%, and operate with unity power factor. The power converter with energy storage system embedded can deliver additional active power in transient state to improve generator stability.
