ABSTRACT A radial basis function network (RBFN) based power system
stabilizer (PSS) is presented in this paper to improve the dynamic
stability of multimachine power systems. The proposed RBFN is trained
over a wide range of operating conditions in order to re-tune the
parameters of the PSS in real-time. Time domain simulations of a
multimachine power system with different operating conditions subject to
a three phase fault are studied and investigated. The performance of the
proposed RBFN PSS is compared to that of conventional power system
stabilizer (CPSS). The results show the good damping characteristics of
the proposed RBFN PSS over a wide range of operating conditions

    ABSTRACT: The use of the supplementary controllers of a unified power flow controller (UPFC) to damp low frequency oscillations is investigated. The potential of the UPFC supplementary controllers to enhance the dynamic stability is evaluated by measuring the electromechanical controllability through singular value decomposition (SVD) analysis. Individual designs of the UPFC controllers using particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique are discussed. A nonlinear, time-domain objective function is considered. The effectiveness of the proposed controllers on damping low frequency oscillations is tested through eigenvalue analysis and non-linear time simulation. For comparison, power system stabilizer (PSS) performance is also included.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the static synchronous compensator (StatCom) voltage regulation by a B-spline neural network. The fact that the electric grid is a non-stationary system, with varying parameters and configurations, adaptive control schemes may be advisable. Thereby the control technique must guarantee its performance on an actual operating environment where the StatCom is embedded. The B-spline neural net (B-SNN) is a convenient tool to execute the power system voltage adaptive control, with the possibility of carrying out such tasks on-line and taking into account non-linearities. The proposed controller presents a simple structure, adaptability, fast response, and robustness. The simplicity and performance of such control are exhibited. The applicability of the proposition is tested on a lab prototype.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents dynamic model of power system installed with a novel UPFC that consist of two shunt converters and a series capacitor. In this configuration, a series capacitor is used between two shunt converters to inject desired series voltage. As a result, it is possible to control the active and reactive power flow. The main advantage of the proposed UPFC in comparison with the conventional configuration is injection of a series voltage waveform with a very low total harmonic distortion (THD). In addition, a linearized Phillips–Heffron model is obtained and a supplementary controller for the modeling of proposed UPFC to damp low frequency oscillations with considering four alternative damping controllers is recommended. The problem of robustly novel UPFC based damping controller is formulated as an optimization problem according to the time domain-based objective function, which are solved using particle swarm optimization (PSO) and Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA) techniques.
