Multi-Objective Control-Based Frequency Regulation

Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)

Load–frequency regulation systems are faced by new uncertainties in the liberalized electricity markets, and modelling of these uncertainties and dynamic behaviour is important to designing suitable controllers and providing better conditions for electricity trading. The communication delay as a significant uncertainty in the LFC synthesis/analysis can degrade the system’s performance and even cause system instability. In Chap. 5, a robust decentralized \({H}_{\infty }\)
