Firefly Optimization Based Control Strategies for Combined Load Frequency Control and Automatic Voltage Regulation for Two-Area Interconnected Power System
International Journal on Electrical Engineering and Informatics
In this research work the combined Load Frequency Control (LFC) and Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) of a two-area interconnected power system has been considered. Each control area consists of linearized model of thermal and hydropower system. PID controller has been used as the secondary controller for the combined LFC-AVR of the proposed system. A powerful meta-heuristic algorithm Firefly optimisation technique is used for the optimisation of the proposed controller. Comparison of the
... parison of the system dynamics with and without proposed controller is investigated to show effectiveness of the proposed control scheme. Also, a comparison of the proposed control scheme with other popular meta-heuristic techniques shows the superiority of the proposed control scheme. Moreover, small signal stability analysis of the proposed system has been done using the state space representation of the proposed system.
