The Load-Frequency Control (LFC) problem has been one of the major subjects in electric power system design/operation and is becoming much more significant today in accordance with increasing size, changing structure and complexity of interconnected power systems. In practice, load-frequency control (LFC) systems use simple proportional-integral (PI) controllers. However, since the PI controller parameters are usually tuned based on classical or trial-and-error approaches, they are incapable of obtaining good dynamical performance for a wide range of operating conditions and various load changes scenarios in a multi-area power system. In this paper with regard to this problem, the decentralised LFC synthesis is formulated as an H/spl infin/-control problem and is solved using an iterative linear matrix inequalities algorithm to design of robust PI controllers in the multi-area power systems. A three area power system example with a wide range of load changes is given to illustrate the proposed approach. The resulting controllers are shown to minimize the effect of disturbances and maintain the robust performance.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
