Virtual synchronous generators (VSGs) present attractive technical advantages and contribute to enhanced system operation and reduced oscillation damping in dynamic systems. Traditional VSGs often lack an interworking during power oscillation. In this paper, a coordinated control strategy for multiple VSGs is proposed for mitigating power oscillation. Based on a theoretical analysis of the parameter impact of VSGs, a coordinated approach considering uncertainty is presented by utilizing

Subsequently, the inertia and damping of multiple VSGs are jointly exploited to reduce oscillation periods and overshoots during transient response. Simulation, utilizing a two-area four-machine system and a typical microgrid test system, demonstrates the benefits of the proposed strategy in enhancing operation stability and the anti-disturbing ability of multiple VSGs. The results conclusively confirm the validity and applicability of the method.
