Fuzzy Coordination of FACTS Controllers for Damping Power System Oscillations
This paper concerns the optimization and coordination of the conventional FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) damping controllers in multi-machine power system. Firstly, the parameters ofFACTS 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.
