Super-twisting algorithm, a second-order sliding mode control method, is studied for hydropower plant frequency control. Two versions of this algorithm are introduced in this paper. Simulation results from both of these second-order methods and regular sliding mode control are compared on the basis of system responses and control efforts. It is shown that the second-order sliding mode controller is able to reduce chattering effects associated with the regular sliding mode control and preserve the robustness of the regular sliding mode control as well.
