WATER CYCLE ALGORITHM BASED POWER SYSTEM STABILIZER ROBUST DESIGN FOR POWER SYSTEMS

Navid Ghaffarzadeh

   Power System Stabilizers (PSSs) are used to enhance damping of power system oscillations. This paper presents a new fast algorithm to develop PSS. According to this regard, Water Cycle Algorithm (WCA) is used to detect optimum Power System Stabilizer parameters. For this purpose, the design problem of PSS is formulated as an optimization problem and WCA by forming three subsidiary objective functions is employed to search for optimal power system stabilizer's parameters to minimize the maximum overshoot and settling time together. In order to show the efficiency of the proposed algorithm, a comparison between WCA and without PSS condition has been done, and the results of proposed algorithm show that it detects optimum parameters in reasonable computation time to increase the power system stability.

Keywords: power system stabilizer (PSS), water cycle algorithm (WCA), power system stability, optimum parameters
