Voltage mode stabilisation in power systems with dynamic loads
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a novel modelling and excitation control design to enhance large-disturbance voltage stability in power systems with significant induction motor (IM) loads. The excitation controller is designed using minimax linear quadratic Gaussian (LQG) controller synthesis method. The nonlinear power system model is reformulated with a linear and a nonlinear term. The nonlinear term is the Cauchy remainder in the Taylor series expansion and its bound is used, in this paper, in a robust control design. An advantage of this approach over the existing linearisation scheme is the treatment of the nonlinear dynamic load model in a rigorous framework for excitation control design. The performance of the designed controller is demonstrated by large disturbance simulations on a benchmark power system for various types of loads.
