Abstract: The low-frequency oscillations (LFOs) inherent inpower systems will be impacted by the increasing penetrationof renewable energy sources (RESs). This paper investigates theimpact of virtual synchronous machine (VSM) based RESs on theLFOs in power systems. A detailed two-machine test-bed has beendeveloped to analyze the LFOs which exists when VSMs replacesynchronous generators. The characteristics of the LFO modesand the dominant states have been comprehensively analyzed.Furthermore, this study analyzes the LFO modes which existsin an all-VSM grid. The role of the power system stabilizers inthe all-VSM grid has been comprehensively evaluated. The IEEEbenchmark two-area four-machine system has been employed tocorroborate the results of the small-signal analysis and observethe transient performance. The analysis in this paper have beenperformed in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment.
