Automatic Generation Control (AGC) or Load Frequency Control is a very important issue in power system operation and control for supplying sufficient and reliable electric power with good quality. AGC is a feedback control system adjusting a generator output power to remain defined frequency. One of the objectives of AGC is to maintain the system frequency at nominal value In the steady state operation of power system .An extended power system can be divided into a number of load frequency control areas interconnected by means of tie lines. Without loss of generality one can consider a three- area case connected by tie line. Here we are considering system, which is integration of two thermal power systems with hydro power system. That is area-1 and area-2 consists of thermal reheat power plant whereas area-3 consists of hydro power plant. The performance analysis of load frequency control for multi area inter connected system will be done in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. As integration of multi area effects performance of system study of different characteristics using controllers like conventional PI ,PID, artificial intelligence FUZZY LOGIC controlling techniques are necessary in order to determine the effective gains of controller in efficient manner. And this knowledge about dynamic response characteristics will give us idea of controlling techniques that we need to implement for obtaining required frequency response at tie line stations.

## INTRODUCTION |

Load Frequency Control is a very important issue in power system operation and control for supplying sufficient and reliable electric power with good quality. AGC is a feedback control system adjusting a generator output power to remain defined frequency[2][5]. Load frequency control is the basis of many advanced concepts of the large. The dynamic behaviour of many industrial plants is heavily influenced by disturbances and, in particular, by changes in the operating point. This is typically the case for power systems The control strategy of PI and PID control The reason PID controllers are so popular is that using PID gives the designer a larger number of options and those options mean that there are more possibilitie for changing the dynamics of the system in a way that helps the designer[5]. If the designer works it right we can get the advantages of several effects. Frequency deviation and tie line power deviation are the two prime parameters with respect to LFC. In interconnected power system, load variations in any areas disturb the frequency and tie-line power of other interconnected areas [3]. The fuzzy controller offers better performance over the conventional controllers, especially, in complex and nonlinearities associated with the two regions interconnected reheat thermal and hydro power system. |

## AGC IN THE MULTIAREA SYSTEM |

All generators are supposed to constitute a coherent group in each control area[2]. From experiments, it can be seen that each area needs its system frequency and tie line power flow to be controlled. |

The real power transferred over the tie line is given by: Where X12= X1+Xtie+X2 (1) |

From eqn.(1)For a small deviation in the tie-line flow |

The tie-line power deviation then takes on the form |

## CONTROLLING METHODOLOGIES |

In this paper there are two controlling methodologies mentioned. They are: |

1. Conventional control |

2. Fuzzy logic control. |

Fuzzy logic controller : |

Fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic constitute the rules of a nonlinear mapping. The use of fuzzy sets provide a basis for a systematic way for the application of uncertain and indefinite models. Fuzzy control is based on a logical system called fuzzy logic is much closer in spirit to human. By taking ACE as the system output, the control vector for a conventional PI controller can be given as. |

Table1. Fuzzy rules for ACE(k) and Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ACE(k) |

As will be shown in the simulation results, the conventional PI controller results in a large overshoot and a long settling time Also, settling time for the control parameters is very long. According to many researchers, there are some reasons for the present popularity of fuzzy logic control. First of all, fuzzy logic can be easily applied for most applications in industry. |

Multi stage fuzzy PID controller: |

Multi stage fuzzy PID controller with fuzzy switch is a type of controller where the PD controller becomes active depending on certain conditions. The resulting structure is a controller using two-dimensional inference engines (rule base) to reasonably perform the task of a threedimensional controller. The proposed method requires fewer resources to operate and its role in the system response is more apparent, i.e. it is easier to understand the effect of a two dimensional controller than a threedimensional one. So, three dimensional controller can partitions into two dimensional one. |

Conventional PID controller: |

One of the most widely used control methods in thermal and hydro power station governing systems is the conventional PI type controller. Proportional controller is used to reach the steady state condition much quicker because of the faster transient response with proportional controller. The proportional term of the controller produces a control signal proportional to the error in the system, so that u (t) = Kp e (t). Typically, given a step change of load demand, low values of Kp give rise to stable responses with large steady-state errors. Higher values of Kp give better steady-state performance, but worse transient response. Therefore, the higher value of Kp is used to reduce the steady state error, although increasing the gain Kp decreases the system time constant and damping. Therefore it is evident to choose the optimum value of Kp. The proportional action can never eliminate the steady state error in the system because some (small) error must be present in order to produce a control output. A common way of reducing the steady state error is by incorporating integral action into the controller |
