A new approach based on μ-synthesis technique is proposed for the design of robust load frequency controller in response to the new technical demand for load frequency regulation in a competitive distributed generation power system. The siting of numerous generator units in distribution feeders is being encouraged by the current deregulation of the industry is likely to have an impact on the Load Frequency Control (LFC) operation of the existing power systems. In this approach the overall power system will be divided to some distribution areas. Each area is modeled as a collection of distributed generators to supply the area-load. The area is responsible to perform its own LFC by using an independent robust controller. An example for a distribution area is given to illustrate the proposed approach. The resulting controller is shown to minimize the effect of disturbances and achieve acceptable frequency regulation in presence of uncertainties and load variation.

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.
