Abstract

This paper presents a decentralized model reference adaptive control (DMRAC) scheme for the design of power system stabilizers (PSS) and a means for coordinating the generating unit excitation and governor control loops. In the proposed scheme the state variables of the generating unit (GU) are to track those of an explicitly specified reference system which is designed to have desirable performance characteristics. The adaptive control law for coordinating the exciter-governor stabilizer signals is derived from a Liapunov energy function, and thus assures system stability. Decentralized regulation and tracking tests on simulated one-machine infinite bus system show significant improvement in system performance.
