A new communication strategy for decentralized control of paralleled multi-inverter systems is introduced in this paper. The proposed strategy utilizes the common mode signal's circuit in the paralleled system as a channel of communication between individual inverters. Source voltage synchronization for paralleled inverters is presented to demonstrate its effectiveness. One inverter module acts as a source and a synchronized signal is sent by means of frequency modulation in this channel to all other modules via the common mode current. Each module will then receive and transform the signal to be used as a synchronized voltage command for individual inverters. The approach enables synchronization in the paralleled multi-inverter system and the method is not affected by external factors such as load change, output voltage variation, and different types of loads. The principle of operation, performance of the proposed strategy, as well as the experimental evaluation with three single-phase paralleled inverters are discussed and presented in this paper.
