This paper proposes a holistic framework for parameter coordination of a power electronic interfaced microgrid interconnection against natural disasters. The paper identifies transient stability issue in a microgrid interconnection. Based on recent advances in control theory, we design a framework that can systematically coordinate system parameters, such that post-disaster equilibrium points of microgrid interconnections are asymptotically stable. The core of the framework is a stability assessment algorithm using sum of squares programming. The efficacy of the proposed framework is tested in a four-microgrid interconnection. The proposed framework has potential to extend to microgrid interconnections with a wide range of hierarchical control schemes.
