This paper proposes a Distributed Second Order Sliding Mode (D-SOSM) control strategy for Optimal Load Frequency Control (OLFC) in power networks, where besides frequency regulation also minimization of generation costs is achieved. Because of unknown load dynamics and possible network parameters uncertainties, the sliding mode control methodology is particularly appropriate for the considered control problem. This paper considers a power network partitioned into control areas, where each area

On a suitable designed sliding manifold, the controlled system exhibits an incremental passivity property that allows us to infer convergence to a zero steady state frequency deviation minimizing the generation costs.
