The current and massive deployment of non-synchronous generation is degrading the inertial response in power systems. The addition of an extra control loop, the so-called synthetic inertia, can contribute in the improvement of the frequency response, through an additional power injection. In this paper, the active damping method is used to enhance both, the closed-loop current control and the synthetic inertia control loop. A full aggregated model of a wind turbine generator (WTG) is integrated in a test system. The results obtained show an increase in the power injected into the grid, thereby improving the frequency response after a frequency disturbance. Moreover, the response of the closed current-control loop and voltage loop are presented, in order to show their interaction with the synthetic inertia control.
