Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper develops a proportional plus derivative (PD) control scheme for a thyristor controlled series compensator (TCSC) to reinforce power system damping performance. This PD control scheme is aided by the use of genetic algorithms (GAs). The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated through computer simulation using a multi-machine power system associated with a single TCSC. Results show that the proposed PD controller can achieve good damping performance.
