Fuzzy Coordination of FACTS Controllers for Damping Power System Oscillations

Abstract

This paper concerns the optimization and coordination of the conventional FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) damping controllers in multimachine power system. Firstly, the parameters of FACTS controller are optimized. Then, a hybrid fuzzy logic controller for the coordination of FACTS controllers is presented. This coordination method is well suitable to series connected FACTS devices like UPFC, TCSC etc. in damping multi-modal oscillations in multi-machine power systems. Digital simulations of a multi-machine power system subjected to a wide variety of disturbances and different structures validate the efficiency of the new approach.
