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: 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: Power system stability enhancement via individual and coordinated optimum design of power system stabilizer and static phase shifter based stabilizer is thoroughly investigated in this paper. The coordinated design problem of excitation and static phase shifter-based stabilizer at nominal loading condition over a wide range of uncertainties and system parameter variations is formulated as an optimization problem with an eigenvalue–based objective function. The reinforcement learning automata based optimization algorithm called Combinatorial Discrete and Continuous Action Reinforcement Learning Automata (CDCARLA) is employed to search for the optimal setting of the proposed controller parameters. The participation factors method is used to identify the poorly damped electromechanical mode which is used in the evaluation of the eigenvalue–based objective function. This study also presents a singular value decomposition–based approach to assess and measure the controllability of the identified electromechanical mode by different control inputs over a wide range of loading conditions. For evaluation of the effectiveness and the robustness of the proposed stabilizers, aweakly connected power system with different disturbances, loading conditions, and system parameter variations is considered. The nonlinear simulation results and the eigenvalues analysis indicate a high performance of the proposed stabilizers and their ability to provide efficient damping of the low frequency oscillations.
