Automatic Generation Control of Multi-Area Power System-A ANN Approach

Authors(2) :-Santosh Kumar Suman, Vinod Kumar Giri

This paper, fundamental controller system is presented for Automatic Generation Control of three-area interconnected power system. The objective of providing an Automatic Generation Control (AGC) has been to maintain the system frequency at nominal value and the power interchange between different areas at their programmed values. The main requirement of an interconnected AGC is to ensure that frequency of various bus voltages and currents are maintained at near specified nominal values, tie-line power flowing among the interconnected areas are maintained at specified levels, and total power requirement on the system as a whole is shared by individual generators economically in optimum fashion. The simulations have been performed using MATLAB.
