This paper presents the small-signal stability performance of a dc microgrid (MG) and investigates the interactions between the converter controllers by studying the critical modes. A comprehensive small-signal analysis using both the impedance-based method and eigenvalue-based analysis method has been presented thoroughly to investigate the high-frequency oscillation in the dc MG. The results show that there are inherent weak modes within the dc MG which could destabilize the MG in the presence of disturbances. Moreover, the controller gains and dc-link capacitance are found to be the most sensitive to substantial disturbance and have a significant influence on the weak modes leading to oscillation and resonance. The source side converter is found to be more influential than the load side converter in regard to various disturbances.
