This paper describes the current sharing and volt-age regulation performance of three types of paralleling con-figurations, i.e., paralleling Thévenin sources, paralleling one Thévenin source with many Norton sources and paralleling Nor-ton sources. The corresponding control methods with and without current-sharing loop for the three types to obtain both current sharing and voltage regulation are detailed. Using small-signal analysis, the inherent characteristics of the basic schemes are expounded. Comparisons are made for all the schemes in terms of current sharing and voltage regulation. Finally, an experiment prototype is built to validate the analysis. Experimental results verify the analysis.
