The electric power system has been traditionally dominated by fuel-based synchronous rotating generators. Recently the electric power industry is experiencing a paradigm shift towards an increased share of power electronics interfaced generation. This shift is mainly due to increased integration of renewable energy resources (e.g. wind turbines and solar photovoltaics), and results in a multifaceted...
