Coordinated Design of Power System Stabilizers and Static Phase Shifters Using Genetic Algorithm
Abstract:Coordinated design of a power system stabilizer (PSS) and a static phase shifter (SPS) using genetic algorithm (GA) is investigated in this paper. The design problem of PSS and SPS controller is formulated as an optimization problem. An eigenvalue-based objective function to increase the system damping is proposed. Then, GA is employed to search for optimal controller parameters. Different control schemes have been proposed and tested on a weakly connected power system with different disturbances, loading conditions, and parameter variations. It was observed that although the PSS enhances the power system stability, the SPS controller provides most of the damping and improves the voltage profile of the system. The nonlinear simulation results show the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed control schemes over a wide range of loading conditions and system parameter variations.
