In this paper, a new method of determining the variable
structure controller switching vector gains is presented.
Contrary to the trial and error selection of the variable
structure feedback gains reported in the literature, the
selection in the present work is done using genetic
algorithms. The proposed design has been applied to the
load frequency problem of a single area power system.
The system performance against step load variations has
been simulated and compared to some previous methods.
