This recommended practice defines the fundamental principles, mandatory functions, and optional functions of a Virtual Synchronous Machine (VSM), i.e., a power electronic converter that is operated to behave like conventional synchronous machines. It does not describe or specify power semiconductor devices, hardware topologies, or micro-controllers that are used to build a VSM.
