This paper investigates the mechanisms behind converters driven stability and the stabilizing effect of grid-forming control. The study is carried out by analyzing the linearized state space model of different combinations of controls in a multi-infeed system at various operating points. By conducting a parametric sensitivity study and analyzing the participation factors of key eigenvalues of the linearized models, it is confirmed that grid-forming controls bring a stabilizing effect to the system. Moreover, this paper will demonstrate that this effect varies significantly with the considered grid-forming control: whether a current control loop is used or not significantly impacts stability.
