New Control Law Improves Power System Stability
Four faculty members of Covenant University, Dr. Ayokunle Awelewa, Professor Claudius Awosope, Engr. Ademola Abdulkareem and Engr. Isaac Samuel, all of the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering, had recently developed nonlinear generator excitation controllers for improving power system stability.
The new development, according to them, was based on the existing universal Higher-Order Sliding Mode Control Structure (HSMCS), furnishing the system with robustness quality in the presence of disturbance.
Their study titled, ‘Non-Linear Control Laws for Electric Power System Stabilisation’, concluded that the developed controllers minimized computational time and also made the system able to withstand longer fault duration.
