ABSTRACT

This paper presents a novel development of a fuzzy logic controlled power system using UPFCs to damp
the oscillations in a FACTS based integrated multi-machine power system consisting of 3 generators, 3
transformers, 9 buses, 4 loads & 2 UPFCs. Oscillations in power systems have to be taken a serious note
of when the fault takes place in any part of the system, else this might lead to the instability mode &
shutting down of the power system. UPFC based POD controllers can be used to suppress the oscillations
upon the occurrence of a fault at the generator side or near the bus side. In order to improve the dynamic
performance of the multi-machine power system, the behavior of the UPFC based POD controller should be
coordinated, otherwise the power system performance might be deteriorated. In order to keep the
advantages of the existing POD controller and to improve the UPFC-POD performance, a hybrid fuzzy
coordination based controller can be used ahead of a UPFC based POD controller to increase the system
dynamical performance & to coordinate the UPFC-POD combination. This paper depicts about this hybrid
combination of a fuzzy with a UPFC & POD control strategy to damp the electro-mechanical oscillations.
The amplification part of the conventional controller is modified by the fuzzy coordination controller.
Simulink models are developed with & without the hybrid controller. The 3 phase to ground symmetrical
fault is made to occur near the first generator for 200 ms. Simulations are performed with & without the
controller. The digital simulation results show the effectiveness of the method presented in this paper.
