This paper proposes an adaptive feedforward compensation that alters the dynamic coupling between a distributed-resource unit and the host microgrid, so that the robustness of the system stability to droop coefficients and network dynamic uncertainties is enhanced. The proposed feedforward strategy preserves the steady-state effect that the conventional droop mechanism exhibits and, therefore, does not compromise the steady-state power sharing regime of the microgrid or the voltage/frequency regulation. The feedforward compensation is adaptive as it is modified periodically according to the system steady-state operating point which, in turn, is estimated through an online recursive least-square estimation technique. This paper presents a discrete-time mathematical model and analytical framework for the proposed feedforward compensation. The effectiveness of the proposed control is demonstrated through time-domain simulation studies, in the PSCAD/EMTDC software environment, conducted on a detailed switched model of a sample two-unit microgrid.
