The main purpose of this paper is to provide a systematic geometric frame for generalized controlled Hamiltonian systems. The pseudo-Poisson manifold and the ω-manifold are proposed as the statespace of the generalized controlled Hamiltonian systems. A Lie group, calledN-group, and its Lie algebra, calledN-algebra, are introduced for the structure analysis of the systems. Some properties, including spectrum, structure-preservation, etc. are investigated. As an example the theoretical results are applied to power systems. The stabilization of excitation systems is investigated.
