Power system stabilization using neural networks


Wenxin Liu


"This dissertation includes three papers on power system stabilization using neural network based controllers. Conventional power system stabilizers (CPSSs) are based on linearized models and their parameters are fine tuned to provide good performance around an operating point. At other operating points, the performance of the CPSS degrades. To overcome the drawbacks of CPSS, the first paper presents the design of a continual online trained indirect adaptive neural network (IANN) controller for a single machine infinite bus power system. The second paper presents the design of a nonlinear optimal neurocontroller using adaptive critic designs, combining the concepts of approximate dynamic programming and reinforcement learning, for power system stabilization...The third paper presents the design of a direct NN controller with stability analysis for a single machine power system"--Abstract, page iv.
