DAMPING OF OSCILLATIONS IN SMIB SYSTEM WITH NEURO-FUZZY BASED UPFC CONTROLLER
Low Frequency Oscillations (LFO) occur in power systems because of lack of the damping torque in order to dominance to power system disturbances as an example of change in mechanical input power. Traditionally, power system stabilizers (PSS) are being used to damp these oscillations. Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is a well-known FACTS device that can control power flow in transmission lines. It can also replace PSS to damp low frequency oscillations effectively through direct control of voltage and power. In this paper a liberalized Philips-Heffron model of a (Single Machine–Infinite Bus) power system with a unified power flow controller is considered and also in order to damp LFO, adaptive neuro-fuzzy controller for UPFC is designed and simulated. Simulation is performed for various types of loads and for different disturbances. Simulation results show good performance of neuro-fuzzy controller in damping LFO.
