Intelligent automatic generation control.


Intelligent automatic generation control.

Bevrani, Hassan and Takashi Hiyama.

CRC Press


290 pages




Automatic generation control (AGC) is one of the important problems in designing and operating interconnected power systems, say Bevrani (U. of Kurdistan) and Hiyama (Kumamoto U.), and rapid changes in the power business mean that they must be intelligent and flexible in order to maintain a balance between generation and load following serious disturbances. They explain the fundamentals of power system AGC to engineers and operators planning and running a power system, and to researchers and students in electrical engineering. They also introduce several new schemes using intelligent control methodologies to minimize system frequency deviation while simultaneously adjusting tie-line power to match the total generation and load demand, which is required to operate interconnected systems successfully.
