Paper Title - FPA based Optimized PI Controller for AGC in a Two-Area Thermal-Diesel Interconnected Restructured Power System
This paper presents an application of bio-inspired Flower Pollination Algorithm (FPA) based Proportional-
Integral (PI) controllers in Automatic Generation Control (AGC) of two-area thermal-diesel power system. The PI controller
gain of the AGC problem are tuned by using the FPA algorithm in order to achieve the optimal transient response of the
system under for different types of possible transactions in restructured environment. The Integral Square Error (ISE) is
considered the objective function for the FPA. The supremacy performance of proposed algorithm for optimized PI
controller is proved by comparing the results with Genetic Algorithm (GA), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and
Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFO) based PI controller under the same investigated power system. The simulation
results reveal that the performance of the FPA-optimized controller is better than its GA, PSO and BFO-optimized
counterpart in terms of settling time and overshoot in deviation of frequency. The convergence speed performance of the
proposed algorithm is significantly better compared to those achieved by the existing algorithms. Moreover the Power
System Restoration Indices (PSRI) is computed based on system dynamic performances of two-area thermal-diesel
interconnected power system and the remedial measures to be taken can be adjudged.
