Modified SCA algorithm for SSSC damping Controller design in Power System

Bidyadhar Rout, BIBHUTI BHUSAN PATI, Sidharth Panda


This paper studies the improvement of transient stability of a single-Machine Infinite-Bus (SMIB) power system using Proportional Derivative (PD) type Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) and damping controllers. The design problem has been considered as optimisation problem and a modified version of recently proposed Sine Cosine Algorithm (SCA) has been employed for determining the optimal controller parameters. Proposed modified SCA (mSCA) algorithm is first tested using bench mark test functions and compared with SCA, and other heuristic evolutionary optimization algorithms like Grey Wolf optimization (GWO), Particle Swarm optimization (PSO), Gravitational Search algorithm (GSA) and Differential Evolution algorithm to show its superiority. The proposed mSCA algorithm is then applied to optimize simultaneously the PD type lead lag controller parameters pertaining to SSSC and power system stabilizer(PSS). The proposed controller provides sufficient damping for power system oscillation in different operating conditions and disturbances. Results analysis reveal that proposed mSCA technique provides higher effectiveness and robustness in damping oscillations of the power system and increases the dynamic stability more.
