    Abstract

    This paper examines the performance of an optimal sliding mode Gaussian (OSG) controller for the regulation of a hydropower plant implemented in the modeling program SIMSEN. The controller is designed to regulate grid frequency and includes the dynamics of the wicket gate servo system, turbine, and grid. Simulation results for OSG control are compared to those of more traditional LQG and PI controllers. Simulation shows that OSG control provides superior performance for the nominal system and for the system with parametric uncertainties.
