Grid-forming inverters play an important role in supporting power systems with low rotational inertia. Their frequency and voltage control policies must guarantee a synchronised operation, accurate power sharing amongst inverters, and a good transient response. Simultaneously achieving the latter two requirements is in general a non-trivial problem and existing schemes in the literature often focus on one of these two aspects. In this paper, we propose a simple frequency controller that uses the inverter output current as feedback to adapt its frequency, and also propose controllers for the regulation of the DC and AC voltages. We show that the proposed control architectures achieve both power sharing without a communication link, and desirable passivity properties that can enhance the dynamic performance. Closed loop stability of the grid-forming inverter with a dynamic load is also proven and simulations on advanced models are carried out to validate the results.
