Grid forming control for inverter-dominated power systems of the future is crucial as it enables more renewable penetration and provides enhanced stability. In this paper, a power system that consists of both Synchronous Machines (SM) and Grid Forming Controlled PV system is modeled and simulated in MATLAB ® /Simulink ® . Moreover, the real parameters of laboratory pieces of equipment in Manisa Celal Bayar University Smart Grid Laboratory (MCBU-SGLab) are used throughout the study. In addition, various Grid Forming Converter control methods such as droop control, matching control, and dispatchable virtual oscillator control are compared in terms of frequency stability under different conditions.
