Inverter-based generation (IBG) is critical in achieving a dependable and resilient electrical system while meeting the net-zero emission goal. The enormous integration of IBG tends to produce various issues, including reduced rotational inertia and reduced short circuit levels. Several scientific publications agree that the voltage source converters (VSCs) empowered by the so-called grid forming (GFM) control may provide a lasting answer for reaching the future net-zero IBG-dominated power systems. This paper presents a comparative analysis of the dynamic performance between IBR using synchronverter and a traditional synchronous generator (SG), where the specific concern is the transient stability conditions. DIgSILENT PowerFactory has been used for time-domain simulations using a test system, and numerical simulations considering an N-l event prove the significant benefit of GFN converter controls in providing active power during a voltage sag induced by a short circuit condition, allowing the system to endure longer short circuit durations.
