In this paper, we address the problem of stability and frequency regulation of a recently proposed inverter. In this type of inverter, the DC-side capacitor emulates the inertia of a synchronous generator. First, we remodel the dynamics from the electrical power perspective. Second, using this model, we show that the system is stable if connected to a constant power load, and the frequency can be regulated by a suitable choice of the controller. Next, and as the main focus of this paper, we analyze the stability of a network of these inverters, and show that frequency regulation can be achieved by using an appropriate controller design. Finally, a numerical example is provided which illustrates the effectiveness of the method.
