Fuzzy Logic Based Load Frequency Control of Two Area Power System in Deregulated Environment


Article Preview

In this paper fuzzy logic based load frequency control (LFC) of two area power system in deregulated environment was studied. A two area system is considered in which all areas are interconnected by normal AC tie-lines. In the proposed system the effects of bilateral contracts between DISCOs and GENCOs are also considered. The performance of the fuzzy logic controller is tested on a deregulated two area load frequency control system for different operating conditions using MATLAB Simulink tool.
