The paper presents an optimal and coordinated power oscillation damper based on a wind turbine and power system stabilizer (PSS) to maintain the power system stability and damp inter-area oscillations. The optimal and coordinated design of the PSS located at the generator site and the damper which was installed in the control section of the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) is defined as an optimization problem and simulations have been performed in MATLAB software environment. To determine optimal coefficients of the PSS and damper, the metaheuristic salp swarm optimization (SSA) algorithm was employed with an objective function that aimed to minimize the error caused by frequency deviations of two areas. Due to the use of wide-area measurement systems (WAMS) in the proposed damper to enhance controllability and observability of most of the oscillation modes, time delays resultant from the WAMS was also taken into account. Additionally, uncertainties of wind intermittency and time delay of WAMS were calculated probabilistically. The suggested method was applied to a six-machine two-area power system with a wind farm. The obtained simulation results highlighted and validated the superior performance and stability of the power system as a result of using the proposed method.
Keywords: inter-area oscillations, power system stabilizer, doubly-fed induction generator, wide-area measurement system, uncertainty, time delay.
