    Two-level optimal load-frequency control for multi-area power systems

    , Article International Journal of Electrical Power and Energy Systems ; Volume 53, Issue 1 , December , 2013 , Pages 540-547 ; 01420615 (ISSN) Rahmani, M ; Sadati, N ; Sharif University of Technology
    In large-scale power systems, classical centralized control approaches may fail due to geographically distribution of information and decentralized controllers result in sub-optimal solution for load-frequency control (LFC) problems. In this paper, a two-level structure is presented to obtain optimal solution for LFC problems and also reduce the computational complexity of centralized controllers. In this approach, an interconnected multi-area power system is decomposed into several sub-systems (areas) at the first-level. Then an optimization problem in each area is solved separately, with respect to its local information and interaction signals coming from other areas. At the second-level,... 

    Application of intelligence-based predictive scheme to load-frequency control in a two-area interconnected power system

    , Article Applied Intelligence ; Volume 35, Issue 3 , 2011 , Pages 457-468 ; 0924669X (ISSN) Mazinan, A. H ; Hosseini, A. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper describes an application of intelligence- based predictive scheme to load-frequency control (LFC) in a two-area interconnected power system. In this investigation, at first, a dynamic model of the present system has to be considered and subsequently an efficient control scheme which is organized based on Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) fuzzy-based scheme and linear generalized predictive control (LGPC) scheme needs to be developed. In the control scheme proposed, frequency deviation versus load electrical power variation could efficiently be dealt with, at each instant of time. In conclusion, in order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme, the whole of outcomes are... 

    Effect of interline power flow controller (IPFC) on interconnected power systems adequacy

    , Article 2008 IEEE 2nd International Power and Energy Conference, PECon 2008, Johor Baharu, 1 December 2008 through 3 December 2008 ; 2008 , Pages 1358-1363 ; 9781424424054 (ISBN) Aminifar, F ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Nasiri, R ; Khodaei, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper probes the impact of utilizing an IPFC on the reliability indices of interconnected power systems. First, a concise presentation of IPFC and its structure are provided and the reliability model of two unequally-rated parallel transmission lines equipped with IPFC is then extracted. The assumed IPFC is composed from two parallel converting bridges associated with each line. Afterwards, based-on equivalent assisting unit approach, different commonly-used adequacy indices including the loss of load expectation (LOLE), loss of energy expectation (LOEE) and system minutes (SM) are calculated. A set of numerical analyses are conducted to illustrate the sensitivity of these indices with...
