  4. Abstract:
  5. In this paper, a wide area measurement, centralized, load frequency control using model predictive control (MPC) is presented for multi-area power systems. A multivariable constrained MPC was used to calculate optimal control actions including generation rate constraints. To alleviate computational effort and to reduce numerical problems, particularly in large prediction horizon, an exponentially weighted functional MPC was employed. Time-based simulation studies were performed on a three-area power system, and the results were then compared with decentralized MPC and classical PI controller. The results show that the proposed MPC scheme offers significantly better performance against load disturbance. Copyright
