Abstract

This paper presents the recent activities of the joint working group CIGRE C4/C6.35/CIRED. Specifically, the characteristics of Inverter Based Generation (IBG) is compared
in detail with the characteristics of synchronous generators used in conventional power plants. In this context, the main differences are identified as: 1) the inertia; 2) the fault current provision; 3) the synchronization capability; and 4) the fixed
internal voltage source. Those characteristics are provided by synchronous generators, but they are not easily provided by IBG units. In order to overcome these differences, grid code requirements for IBG units need to be updated and thus, IBG units also have to provide ancillary services. Moreover, the paper presents the characteristics of IBG from the protection point of view. The internal and external protection of IBG is described in detail and examples are given
