This paper presents a new approach for designing multi-input-single-output (MISO) damping controller for a TCSC in a multi-machine power system. The damping controller design uses particle swarm optimization (PSO) to determine the coefficients of single or multi-stage lead-lag compensators. The classical technique works well in the design of lead-lag compensators for SISO controllers. But, there is no proper step-by-step procedure to achieve the desired performance characteristics for a MISO controller. Hence, in this paper, a computational optimization tool has been used to determine the optimal gains and time constants of a linear MISO damping controller. The damping controller is implemented for a TCSC on a multi-machine multi-modal power system and has shown considerable improvement in minimizing system oscillations.
