The introduction of virtual resistance can effectively suppress the circulating current between microsources and improve power allocation in low-voltage microgrid, but it also causes the voltage deviation of microsources' inverters. An optimization method of virtual resistance based on hybrid index is proposed in order to suppress circulating current and improve voltage deviation at the same time in this paper. The gradient descent method is used to design the virtual resistance optimization process, aiming at the optimization of hybrid index composed of circulating current and voltage deviation. The constraints are deduced with power quality requirements, capacity limitation and static stability, and then virtual resistance values are optimized. The effects of switching load and microsource on the optimization results are analyzed through the simulation of low-voltage microgrid, and the simulation results show that the virtual resistance optimization method can significantly suppress circulating current while improving power quality.
