Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper investigates the frequency control of multi-machine power systems subject to uncertain and dynamic net loads. We propose distributed internal model controllers which coordinate synchronous generators and demand response to tackle the unpredictable nature of net loads. Frequency stability is formally guaranteed via Lyapunov analysis. Numerical simulations on the IEEE 68-bus test system demonstrate the effectiveness of the controllers.
