Title: Universal Wide-area Damping Control for Mitigating Inter-area Oscillations in Power Systems

Abstract

The active damping of inter-area oscillations of low frequencies has been successfully demonstrated to improve the dynamic response of the power grid in a satisfactory manner. It also enhances the system stability and reliability as well. The existence of inter-area oscillations has already become one of the key challenges in large-scale interconnected power grids because they are detrimental to the achievement of maximum power transfer and optimal power flow. This project focuses on the development of a universal damping control based on phasor measurements so that it can be easily implemented by a mix of various fast-acting resources to effectively mitigate inter-area oscillations. With the proposed advanced damping control strategies, the power grid stability and reliability can be managed in a much more flexible manner by utilizing different resources that are geographically dispersed in both the transmission and distribution systems. Moreover, higher power transfer capacity can be also achieved.
