This paper addresses a new decentralized robust load-frequency control (LFC) design in a multi-area power system under deregulation based on bilateral policy scheme. In each control area, the effect of bilateral contracts is taken into account as a set of new input signals to modify the traditional LFC structure. The LFC problem is considered as a multi-objective control problem and formulated via a mixed H2/H∞ control technique, then it is easily carried out to synthesis the desired low-order robust controllers by solving standard linear matrix inequalities (LMI). A three-area power system example with possible contract scenarios and a wide range of load changes is given to illustrate the developed approach. The results of the proposed multi-objective control strategy are compared with pure H∞ design. The resulting controllers are shown to maintain the robust performance and minimize the effect of disturbances and specified uncertainties.

Impact and interest:

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.
