Optimal Based Damping Controllers of Unified Power Flow Controller Using Adaptive Tabu Search

Authors: Anant Oonsivilai, Rungnapa Taithai


This paper presents optimal based damping controllers of Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) for improving the damping power system oscillations. The design problem of UPFC damping controller and system configurations is formulated as an optimization with time domain-based objective function by means of Adaptive Tabu Search (ATS) technique. The UPFC is installed in Single Machine Infinite Bus (SMIB) for the performance analysis of the power system and simulated using MATLAB-s simulink. The simulation results of these studies showed that designed controller has an tremendous capability in damping power system oscillations.

Keywords: damping controller, Adaptive Tabu Search (ATS), Single Machine Infinite Bus (SMIB), Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC)
