ABSTRACT This paper proposes a reinforcement learning based SVC controller to improve the damping of power systems in the presence
of load model parameters uncertainty. The proposed method is trained over a wide range of typical load parameters in order
to adapt the gains of the SVC stabilizer. The simulation results show that the tuned gains of the SVC stabilizer using reinforcement
learning can provide better damping than the conventional fixed-gains SVC stabilizer. To evaluate the usefulness of the proposed
method, we compare the response of this method with PD controller. The simulation results show that our method has the better
control performance than PD controller.

    ABSTRACT: The paper explores the influence of power system loads on static VAr compensator (SVC) damping effectiveness. Equipped with properly tuned additional stabilizers, SVCs have been successfully used for improving the damping of electromechanical oscillations in power systems. The damping improvement is usually achieved through indirect voltage influence through voltage dependent loads. Tuning of an additional compensator stabiliser (ACS) traditionally assumes that loads are statically voltage dependent. However, load parameters are generally uncertain and loads often exhibit same dynamic response. This uncertain dynamic behaviour of loads can introduce an additional phase shift between voltage and load response and such can detune the ACS. Examples of detuning effects of dynamic loads as well as robust tuning of ACS are presented and discussed

    ABSTRACT: A scheme using fuzzy logic control (FLC) is proposed to form a supplementary damping loop for the static VAr compensator (SVC) to increase the transmission capacity. Design of the FLC supplementary loop is based on transient energy analysis for damping a certain mode of inter-area oscillations. A genetic algorithm (GA) is used to tune the rules and membership functions needed in the FLC scheme. Simulation results have shown considerable damping improvements from the proposed schemes in the study system during the postfault period
